Story

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.

    Beyond just a gift

    My wife bought the knife kit for me thinking it might be something I enjoyed doing. She never expected how much joy it would bring me. I was scared at first of screwing it up but as it came together I was getting more and more drawn into it and out of myself and doubt. Loved this whole process, love the finished product. Very high quality. My son will inherit this knife, a knife his father's hands put together.

    Yes!

    My husband loves this! We were also able to get it shipped to our FPO address in Okinawa. I wasn't sure if we were going to be able to but I guess it was one of the few military zips that it could go to! He is so excited to make it. After the other couple items I purchased, I know it'll be great quality. The knife kit is very nicely packaged. *NOTE* it DOES NOT come in a crate! It just comes in a regular box. So if you're wanting the crate, you'll need to tack on another gift ;) one gift just isn't enough from man crates!

    Best Gift Ever

    I got this for my boyfriend’s birthday. He absolutely loved it!!! He told me it was the best gift he’s ever gotten. He can’t wait to make his “Man Knife” creation and I can’t wait to surprise him with more man crates in the future.
