The Knife Life

We don't know much about the guy who wrote, "the pen is mightier than the sword," except that he probably wasn't using his sword right.

Ask any honest farmhand, Japanese chef, or the two most dangerous ninja turtles, and they'll tell you a sharp blade is the most virtuous and versatile tool a man can wield. A trusty, fixed blade won't bend, break, or stray from its owner's side; when the going gets tough, the tough get cut.

But unlike men and Socialist paychecks, not all knives are created equal. We've found that the knives guys trust the most are ones they make themselves. The Knife Making Project Kit gives every guy the opportunity to design, craft, and perfect his new best friend.

Shanks For The Memories

The Knife Making Kit is fronted by a 440c stainless-steel Shawnee Skinner blade crafted in Japan, home of the samurai. This hollow ground blade features a thumb notch for comfortable handling and easy maneuverability, and is manufactured with the durability to outlast its maker.

We've blurred the line between trendy, polished tools and dangerously sharp fashion accessories by including maple burl handle scales, classy brass bolsters, ornately-designed mosaic pins, and a top-grain, vegetable-tanned leather sheath. The knife will develop its own unique character through the process of shaping and staining.

Handle With Care

A dependable knife should instill fear and apprehension into its foes, not its handler, so we've included all the tools needed to rid it of stray splinters and extraneous wood.

Like the chisels of Michelangelo, a gamut of rasps and files, graded sandpapers, and a portable bench vise will give birth to a precision carved masterpiece. And for final touches, a wood finish to pull out the unique grains of the maple burl handle.

The Knife Making Kit contains everything needed for hours of knife crafting in the garage, and a lifetime of handling out in the world.

    Son Loved It

    I bought this for my 14 year old son. He loves stuff like this, and was not disappointed. It took him about 6 hours to complete, and now wants another one for every birthday/Christmas. Looking forward to purchasing others. Have never seen him so excited about a gift, and then the finished product!

    Merry Christmas!

    My 3 kids bought me this last Christmas. I waited until I had the time to properly dedicate to building this. Had I known in advance what it would turn out like I would have taken time off just to enjoy the process earlier! Very patient and enjoy the build in your spare time. Worth it in the end...will wear it proudly!

    Birthday gift for son

    I purchased the kit in February but started in May. Just finished and very much enjoyed the process. Best advice is to have patience.
    My sons birthday is in October so the anticipation is a bonus!
