About This Gift

Project Kit Refills ship in cardboard boxes.
  1. How it ships

    In an awesome cardboard box. Corrugated C Flute cardboard with regular slotted style... told you it was awesome!

Knife-Making Kit 2: The Sequel

Ask any artist, engineer, or parent with multiple children and they'll confess: no one gets it totally right the first time.

Mastering any new skill involves humble expectations and a high patience for imperfection. It's perfectly normal to learn through trial and error...with a major emphasis on the error.

But what do we do when we fall off the horse? We buy a new horse and hope for the best.

Stay Sharp

The Knife Making Refill Kit is the restock every newfound blade shaper needs to gain a new edge on the craft. Creating this high carbon stainless steel blade is a very similar process to the previous knife, but hopefully with more expertise and less band-aids.

This refill kit utilizes the tools from the previous Knife Making Project Kit, and also includes a #12 drill bit and the mosaic pins, brass bolster set, and Desert Ironwood scales needed to shape a trusty and true 7.5" knife.

Each and every Knife Making Refill Kit comes hand-packed with these items curated by our team:

Project Reinforcements

  • Man Crates Knife Making Guide
  • Idaho Hunter Blade
  • Ironwood Handle Scale Set
  • Brass Bolster Set
  • Mosaic Pins
  • #12 Drill Bit

NOTE: Knife Making Refill Kit does not ship in a crate.

All orders placed before 3pm local time will ship the same day.

  • How do I know if my gift will arrive in time for the big day?

    Great question. When checking out, you can select your gift’s guaranteed arrival date. We’ll show you all the shipping options and costs, and you can select which one works best.

    In general, we abide by the Rule of Three:

    If you’re order is placed before 3pm local time, we’ll ship it out that same business day.

    If your order is placed after the 3pm cutoff, well, all hope is lost…kidding! We’ll have your gift out first thing the next business day.

    NOTE: Any gifts with personalized items will require an extra 1-2 business days so we can manufacture it to perfection.

  • I’d like to surprise him. Could you deliver his gift on a specific day? Pretty please?

    Well, since you asked so nicely...of course!

    When choosing shipping options in checkout, you can also select a later delivery date. We’ll keep his gift safe and sound in our warehouse until it’s time to send it.

    Pro-Tip: You can choose delivery dates well into the future, so you could select and schedule all your important gifts for the rest of the year. How clever and responsible of you!

Not only was I excited to send it, but he was thrilled to receive it!

    No sheath?

    My husband loved the original kit and really liked the refill. The only glitch was the refill kit does not include a knife sheath like the original project kit.

    Fun Project!

    My son gave me this kit for Father's Day. What a great little project. In an effort to save sanding work, I tried to shape the handles prior to affixing them....which was a mistake. I had some spare pieces of oak, which worked perfect. Finished product looks good!

    Great project

    My son gifted this to me for my birthday. I love to work with my hands, and this was perfect for me. I have to admit, I was intimidated with a fear of messing it up. I knew my son would want to see the finished work. After staring at the pieces on my bench for a couple weeks, I finally decided, it’s now or never! Every step carefully processed. I knew there were no “do overs”. Slow and deliberate steps, but once I got started it was an obsession. It came out great.
