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 curly maple 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.

No Complaint From Me
I can't figure why people are complaining about the box. My main concern was the contents, which were of much higher quality than I expected. My wife hit a homer by buying me the folder kit for Christmas. I just wanted to complete the project so I could say that I did it. I never expected to actually carry the finished knife, but I was amazed at the quality of the completed product. (I am a big knife guy. If I accidently leave my cell phone at home, I'll let it go, but I will turn around and drive 5 miles back home if I forget my blade!) It easily meets (and surpasses) all my criteria for EDC (every day carry) and has become my EDC of choice over my $175 ZT and numerous Outdoor Edge and Kershaw knives which I own. I had so much fun and was so amazed at my result, I immediately ordered the Idaho Hunter refill kit. Now if I had one gripe, it would be that you need to offer more refills! Yeah, the kit comes with a completed and finished blade, but there's still plenty to do to make it into a knife. I guess you'll have to include a forge to make everybody happy. I'll buy it if you do! One of the best gifts I ever received. Oh, and I have to mention the tools. I was impressed with their quality also. Excellent quality files and a high quality vise as well. All now reside in my tool box and will provide years of service. Thanks for giving me a new hobby. I just retired after over 30 years as a police officer...I know knives.

I bought this gift for my fiance for Valentine's Day! He absolutely loved it! I don't normally leave reviews but since its the day after Valentines and he has already completed the project - I thought it was definitely worth a review!

I can't stop fondling it...
My wife got this as a Birthday gift for me. Once I started making the knife I couldn't stop. It was so fun shaping the metal and forming the wood to fit my hand perfectly. I now consider myself an experienced knife maker and have a fun new hobby. Thanks babe.

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!
