The Modern Skinner features a modern skinning blade design. This kit offers a number of finishing options having pre-drilled holes in the tang with all the hardware included. This version is the combo kit. It comes with blade, bolsters, pins, handle bolts and pre-machined Padauk handle material. The Modern Skinner combo comes with virtually everything you need to build a knife you'll be proud of for life.
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 embelishment. 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 fastners. 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.
