This knife kit comes as a complete parts kit and only requires basic assembly for full functionality. While this model can be modified and/or upgraded in many ways, it will immediately offer a detailed examination of the internal design and assembly aspects of the famous "Blackie Collins" assisted opening mechanism, one of the simplest, yet most reliable patented assisted opening mechanisms on the market. This is a great chance for knife making enthusiast's to learn and understand the design and build-out principals of assisted opening mechanics. We bought these units from Meyerco® in unassembled state to allow our knife making customers to learn the mechanism.
This exclusive kit ships with all parts and components to allow for immediate assembly and use. It features an AUS8 stainless blade with a full "blackout" finish on all exterior parts. The standard handles (included) are sure-grip styled rubber and are ready for assembly.
