Our standard Boot Skinner knife kit is one of the most popular fixed blade knife kits on the market. Now we are offering a new twist on this classic model. The "Wood Boot Skinner" is identical to the stainless version, except that it is constructed from high quality figured Oak and Walnut components. When finished, the wood model is a beautiful facsimile of its much more dangerous stainless steel sibling. Because this version is fully constructed from wood, it makes a great starting point for file-work training, grind training and other embellishment practice. It is also quite a conversation piece, as it is nearly identical in every way to the original design.
This model makes a great project for all levels of knife enthusiasts, including younger builders, woodworking hobbyists, collectors and many others. All parts, including blade, handles, bolsters, brass bolster/handle pins are included with this project. All that is needed to complete this kit is epoxy, sandpaper, hacksaw (pin trimming) and a hammer (for peening pins).
