The Midwest Hunter knife kit is purpose built for use in the field. The drop point knife blank design allows for a larger cutting edge which makes the Midwest Hunter knife kit great for cutting, carving and skinning. This version is the combo kit. It comes with blade, guard, guard pin and pre-machined Lacewood handle scales. Add the handle pins of your choice, together with a touch of proper finishing, and create a great knife that you'll be proud to own and carry for years.
Our pre-machined 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 precise placement control, and to maximize fastening options. Stainless steel pinstock is included for basic handle fastening, but mosaic pins or other types of handle fasteners can be used. 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.
