This classic boot dagger knife kit design is known as the "Gambler's Best Friend". It has been used throughout history and were often prized by members of the nobility class. Our Boot Dagger kit knife features the classic dagger look with a double hollow-ground blade and has pre-drilled holes on the tang to accommodate handle construction. This boot dagger knife blank design makes an excellent concealed-carry knife. This kit is the combo kit and comes with pre-machined Bloodwood knife handle scales and pinstock. Whether you make this knife kit as an art piece, or build it for everyday carry, the Boot Dagger knife kit makes for a fun project and a great knife making experience. This dagger knife design features (6) .125 inch tang holes, and includes stainless steel pinstock for basic handle construction. The two additional center tang holes are .240 inches in diameter and are for weight reduction.
Our pre-machined knife handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the handle tang they are designed for. This allows for proper sanding, shaping, and artistic embellishment. They are also undrilled to allow the builder precise placement control and to maximize fastening options. You can use standard pinstock (included), mosaic pins, or a number of knife handle fasteners. If you do not have a scroll saw to use for creating the required knife handle shape, or you just want to begin from an easier starting point, using these pre-machined scales will help you insure that your Boot Dagger completion will be smooth and successful.
