The EV4N1 folding knife kit is one of the most popular designer knife kits on the market. This model features an AUS-8 cryo-treated blade, heat-treated stainless liners, pre-radiused bolsters and precision screws. Based on its ability to be highly modified, the EV4N1 folder kit is a Skill Rating II-IV project. This version is the combo kit. It comes with all of the EV4N1 basic kit parts, plus pre-machined Padauk handle scales to simplify the completion process. Add a touch of proper finishing, and create a fabulous folding knife.
Our pre-machined handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the handle liners 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.
Pocket clip holes in this kit are not pre-installed. This allows the knife to be engraved on both sides, for those who want to create an art knife effect. For builders who want a tactical look, the clip can be installed per the maker's preference. Please see our clip selection for ideas.
