    Was a knifemaker 30+ y/o. This was a first practice run to start again and it went beautifully. The rosewood scales needed careful TLC. I made a mistake of epoxying the scales to the liners before applying a finish, so I ended up heating the scales after dewhiskering and rubbing in hot gun stock wax. Worked beautifully.

    Directions could be a lot better. Most directions from Woodcraft have a lot to be desired. They are not well written. I saw one comment on the reviews of this knife where someone mentioned the knife is hard to open. I Had the same experience but found out that you need to look closely at the length of the screws provided there are (3) screws that a tad shorter, these are the ones for the pocket clip. Mine now opens must easier and closes easier. I personally used two part epoxy rather than the screws. It is cleaner looking but be sure to mix enough hardener in the epoxy or it will take 24 hours to dry. It happened to me on one side of the knife during the handle installation. After cutting the outline in acrylic handles a Dremel tool grinder was perfect for shaping the contour of the handles. Quite pleased Woodcraft needs to do some work on their instructions and diagrams for a lot of their kits !!!! One last thing these knives are difficult to find in the stores and I typically use 2 store in my state and they are out of stock !! I was able to find one after waiting several weeks and they only got (2) of them in. It was not a franchise store but a corporate store. What gives with that ?

    I added bocote scales and used a rasp to fashion the handle. After finishing to 1500 grit wet-dry sandpaper, the finish really popped. Makes a big impression and a very worthy gift. Don't minimize this 'kit.' All the sanding is worthwhile as the knife fits your hand like a glove I'll be doing again. This time for me

    Instructions tell you to drill counter bore holes on the side of the scales that face the knife instead of on the outside. Easy kit to build and looks great. Makes a great Christmas present. Blade comes very sharp. I don't know how well it will hold up to use. Good kit for the money.

    I bought one of these and put some walnut on the handle with my name carved in it and showed it off to some friends. Had four of them ask me to make them one too.

    The knife comes fully assembled without much room for customization. The pride of building a knife is just not there, when all you're really gonna do is attach the scales, that don't com with btw. Other than that, overall it's a fine knife and I would recommend it to a very beginner. WOODCRAFT'S SERVICE WAS TOP-NOTCH!
