    Comments about Tanto Style Knife Kit :

    What makes this kit great is that you can finish it in a weekend! It is a quality knife kit and fun to make. You do not need the countersinks, as I used drill bits from an index, just use calipers to find the right sizes. If you do not have a drill index, then countersinks to match may be the way to go, but I have not used them. Thanks for reading!

    I use the knife primarily as a work tool, but its balance and, so far, edge holding ability is excellent.

    Comments about Tanto Style Knife Kit :

    This knife kit is pretty solid. I was not a fan of the rivets supplied so I am using just using peened steel rod instead. The blade does show signs of tool marks but its nothing a few passes with sandpaper could not fix. I am using paduk for the scales I do wish there was a model with a steel or brass bolster.

    Comments about Tanto Style Knife Kit :

    This is really a great blade! I would have given it a 5 rating if came with almost ANY other pin type for attaching the scales. Corby rivets, Loveless bolts or even plain old compression rivets would be a better choice in my opinion. Overall, the blade is well made of heavy stainless steel of seemingly good quality. I didn't use the lanyard hole but it's there if one wants to install one. I would recommend this knife to anyone.

    the screw together rivets have small heads that were almost useless unless (I assume) you buy their special stepped bit. I will be using squeeze rivets with their larger heads
