Designed to be the finest quality knife kit available, and with the added functionality and versatility of the button lock opening system, one will be hard pressed to find a better knife for the money, and one more fun to build and operate. This version is the combo kit. It comes with all of the DDR3-BL basic kit parts, plus pre-machined Lacewood handle scales to simplify the completion process. Add a touch of proper finishing, and you will create a fabulous folding knife that you'll be proud to own and carry for life.
Our pre-machined handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the handle liners that they are designed for. This allows for proper sanding, shaping and artistic embellishment. These are also undrilled to allow for precise placement control and to maximize fastening options. You can use the standard handle screws screws (included), or try some mosaic pin wafers. 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, the combo kit with pre-machined scales will help you insure that your kit completion will be smooth and successful.
The DDR3-BL comes standard with a 600 grit satin finished 400 stainless blade and pre-radiused bolsters, 400 stainless hardware and satin finished liners for a high-strength precision fit and finish. The hardened 440 stainless steel moderning bowie style blade is precision fit and highly sharpened right out of the box. The liners have been pre-channeled for a user-created slide safety if desired. The safety slide button is not included with the kit, but can be easily created from typical shop materials. The DDR3-BL model ships standard as a manually opening knife design. With extreme quality fit & finish throughout, the DDR3-BL model offers a choice for the knife builder that allows the creation of a perfect knife. It is a favorite of high-end kit builders who commonly offer them as commissioned project pieces.
