Etch His Sketch
Working as a sailor has always been the most affordable way to see the world. But between ports, there's an awful lot of ocean to look at. And nary a jacuzzi, casino, or mini-golf course on deck. With plenty of free time on their hands, sailors got hands-on, making a mark with personalized knife handles.
The art of carving designs into bone knife handles is known as scrimshawing. It takes a steady hand and strong discipline, much like the seamanship required to steer a vessel through a white squall with 20-foot swells.
The Scrimshaw Knife Kit supplies the knife, tools, and instructions to make sure his maiden voyage is smooth sailing.
Scrim a Little Off the Sides
- The Boker Traditional Series Gentleman's Lockback Knife has a high-quality stainless steel blade and a white bone handle that's begging for an etching.
- A soup-to-nuts batch of scrimshawing supplies will set him up for success. There's a metal scribe, Higgins Black Ink, Renaissance Wax—even a slab of Micarta practicin' ivory.
- The Lansky Dual Grit Sharpener gets right to the point, whether he's sharpening his blade, fishing hooks, or his wit. Maybe not that last one.

Bought this for my husband birthday. He was thrilled with it. The quality of items in this kit was awesome, he didn’t have to go to his garage. Everything he needed was included. These man crates are wonderful to buy as a gift. Going to check out a Father’s Day kit in the next few days!!!!

Excited to try my hand at Skrimshaw
My man rate arrived today, as a Birthday gift. Everything was in great shape, all tools and a classic folder with some work to be done, can’t wait to get started creating another heirloom.
Thanks for always providing quality items

I’m not a bit about knifes but it looks amazing to me. Came in great condition, more tools than I even thought I needed, and it is obviously well built. I got it for Christmas and it’s amazing. Would highly recommend to anyone who is creative. Great job man crate team, it’s amazing!

Received the kit today only to find the box torn up. It was not taped except for one side. This was to be a Christmas gift but it's not worth giving in this condition. For the price It certainly is not worth the price I just paid. Since the kit box is cardboard it should have been shipped inside another box.

Got this as part of a 20th work anniversary because they know I'm a knife nut. Blade is way off center and rubbing against the side, also a small piece of the bone at the corner near the bokster looks to be chipped. Should have been caught by quality control.
