The Persian Fighter knife kit with 416SS guard is an excellent full-tang blade blank upswept fighter design. The Persian knife blank is made from 440C stainless steel and the pre-pinned guard is made from 416 engravable stainless steel. The blade length on the Persian Fighter is 5.5 inches and the thickness is .170 inches. It is hollow-ground, satin finished and has a pre-pinned 416SS finger guard attached. This version is the combo kit. It comes with the Persian Fighter blade plus pre-machined Purpleheart handle scales to simplify the completion process. Add a touch of proper finishing and create a fabulous customized knife that you'll be proud to own and carry.
Our pre-machined handle scales are slightly thicker and larger in diameter than the handle tang that 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. 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.
The tang has (3) pre-drilled .187 inch pin holes for various handle attachment options. Stainless steel handle pinstock is included.
