The Ranger Lockback folding knife kit is a full-sized folder and has a 2 7/8 inch satin finished flat ground blade made from 440C stainless steel. It has been cryogenically treated for additional toughness and edge holding performance. The bolsters, handle pins and liners are made of stainless steel. This lockback folding knife kit design is 4 1/4 inches closed and is 7 inches overall when open. This version is the combo kit. It comes with all of the basic kit parts, plus pre-machined Walnut handle scales to simplify the completion process. Add a touch of proper finishing, and you will create a fabulous folding 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 liners that they are designed for. This allows for proper sanding, shaping and artistic embellishment. These are also undrilled to allow for precise placement control. 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.
