Daggers are considered an iconic design. They have been used throughout history and were often prized by members of the nobility class. Our Boot Dagger features the classic dagger look with a double hollow-ground blade and has pre-drilled holes on the tang to accommodate handle construction. This design makes an excellent concealed-carry knife. This kit is the combo kit and comes with pre-machined Padauk handle material. Whether you make this kit as an art piece or build it for everyday carry, the Boot Dagger combo kit makes for a fun project and a great knife building experience.
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 pins, mosaic pins or a number of handle fasteners. The choice is up to you. If you do not have a scroll saw to use for creating the required handle shape, or you just want to begin from an easier starting point, using these pre-machined scales will help you insure that your kit completion will be smooth and successful.
