The Gentleman's Companion is an excellent skinning knife design. With the classic grind of a skinning knife mixed with a great pocket-sized length, the Gent's Companion is a wonderful configuration for everyday carry. This version is the combo kit. It comes complete with blade, bolsters and pins, and includes pre-machined Walnut handle material for easy kit completion. Invest a fun afternoon in your shop or study and create an excellent knife that you will be proud of for a lifetime.
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.
