The Drop Point Hunter is a great full tang hunting knife blank design. The blade is made from 440A stainless steel. The blade length on this model is 4.00 inches and the thickness is 0.185 inches. It comes hollow ground, satin finished and has a pre-pinned 420 stainless steel finger guard attached. This is a great hunting knife blade blank and is a fun, affordable and simple project to complete. The tang has (2) pre-drilled 0.187 inch through-holes for handle attachment (stainless steel pinstock included) as well as a 0.187 inch thong hole for optional lanyard treatment (thong hole tube included).
This version of the Drop Point Hunter is the combo kit with pre-machined handle scales. It comes with the Drop Point Hunter blade plus pre-machined Bloodwood handle scales, stainless steel pinstock, and a thong hole tube to simplify the completion process. This is a great project for a weekend knife making session. Spend some quality workshop time with this knife kit and enjoy the fun of custom 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 the builder precise placement control and to maximize fastening options. 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.
