    Comments about Skinner Knife Kit :

    I scrapped the rivits and drilled the holes to fit mosaic pins and scaled it in thick ironwood burl. The blade will buff out nicely to a near mirror shine with a few compounds. I refiled the jimps into the wood and finished it with catalyzed urethane.

    Comments about Skinner Knife Kit :

    I'm not a knife builder but these were on sale and I needed a skinner knife so I gave it a try. The kit is very easy to build if done in proper steps. The pattern in the instructions is not to scale so do not use it. The way I did mine was to first spot thru the handle with a brad point drill just to get a small drill spot for location , then drill counter sunk hole to proper depth, then drill thru with proper hole size drill. This process is repeated for the opposite side of the knif handle. If care is taken when drilling all the pieces will line up. Now that the knife handles are rough cut and can be dry mounted I shaped the handle to the blade. All finish sanding and surface finish was then done off the knife, then re assembled for completion.

    Comments about Skinner Knife Kit :

    Here is what I would have liked to know when I was planning the projects (built two of these as gifts.) 1. The screw posts rivets are short (about 0.3 inches post length) this would leave less than 0.1 inches of wood beneath the screw and post heads. However, you can get away with about 0.10 inches under the heads on each side, at the maximum. 2. Many woods are not strong enough when cut this thin. Strengthen the wood with either Cyanoacrylate or very thin Epoxy, applied to the back of the wood, soaked in, and well-cured, preferably before drilling. 3. The screw post rivets are steel, blackened. It is extremely easy to drop and lose a screw. There are no extras, and they are not easy to replace.

    bought 5 of these blanks when on sale. Great little knife and finish well. Just add your scales and put in a decent sheath and will make great gifts. I may keep one for myself which will be unusual.
