The Drop Point Cub knife kit is a great hunter/skinner design. It was purpose-created to fit well in the hand, where the butt can be held freely in the palm to improve precision cutting work control. The drop point blade is made from 440A stainless steel, and the pre-attached guard is made from stainless steel. The blade length on the Drop Point Cub is 2.75 inches, and the blade thickness is .130 inches. It comes hollow-ground, satin-finished, and has a pre-pinned stainless steel finger guard attached. It features (8) .078 inch perimeter tang holes for handle fastening (stainless steel pinstock included), and has a single .187 inch thong hole for optional use (not included). This is a great drop point knife kit design and is a fun, affordable, and straight forward project to complete.
This version is the Drop Point Cub combo kit. It comes with the Drop Point Cub blade plus (2) pre-machined Yellowheart wood handle scale blanks to simplify the completion process. 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 precise placement control and to maximize fastening options.
