The Drop Point Club knife blank is a great hunter/skinner model. It is designed to fit well in the hand, where the butt can be held freely in the palm to do precision cutting work. The drop point blade blank is made from 440A stainless steel and the pre-attached guard is made from 420 stainless. The blade length on the Drop Point Cub is 2.75 inches and the thickness is .130 inches. It comes hollow-ground, satin-finished.This version is the combo kit. It comes with the blade, pre-pinned stainless steel bolsters, plus pre-machined Curly Maple handle scales to simplify the completion process. This is a great project blade kit for a weekend knife making session. Spend some quality shop time with this kit project and enjoy the fun of knife making and customization.
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. 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.
The tang has (8) pre-drilled .078 inch holes in it. It also has a pre-drilled thong hole at .187 inches. We recommend the R78 pinstock and the TH187 Thong hole tubing to complete this knife.
