The Boot Shark fixed blade knife kit is a modern "boot knife inspired" combination design. It will work well as a skinning knife, with an upscale handle, or as a classic boot knife, with a tactical handle treatment. The Boot Shark knife is 7.50 inches in overall length with a 2.625 inch blade. The blade thickness is .175 inches. This skinning boot knife kit design feels great in the hand. The dual stainless bolsters are already pre-attached, helping to simplify the building process. To finish this model, all that is required is to add your own handles, then finish off with a full hand (or machine) sanding.
The blade on the Boot Shark is made from AUS8 stainless steel and is flat-ground. This knife kit design features (2) .200 inch handle holes for handle attachment (stainless steel pins included) and (1) .250 inch thong hole for optional placement (thong hole tubing not included).
