The Utility Hunter knife making kit is a great working fixed blade knife kit. It is designed to fit well in the hand, where the butt can be held freely in the palm to do precision cutting work by applying the forefinger to the serrated top spine edge. The blade blank is made from 440A and the pre-attached guard on this version is made from brass.
The blade length on the Utility Hunter is 3.00 inches and the thickness is .130 inches. It comes hollow ground, satin finished and has a pre-pinned stainless steel finger guard attached.
This is a wonderful hunting blade blank design and is a fun, affordable and simple project to complete. The tang has (2) pre-drilled .187 (3/16") holes in it. We recommend the 3/16 inch pinstock for this knife.
