The Drop Point Hunter is a great full tang hunting knife kit design. The blade is made from 440A and the pre-attached guard on this configuration is made from brass. The blade length on this knife kit is 4.00 inches and the thickness is .185 inches. It comes hollow ground, satin finished and has a pre-pinned brass finger guard attached. This version is the combo kit. It comes with blade, pre-pinned guard and pre-machined Curly Maple handle material to simplify the completion process. Add the handle pins of your choice, together with a touch of proper finishing and you will create a fabulous knife that you'll be proud to carry and own for years.
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.
