    Terrible instructions. No picture diagrams or part numbers. Vague identifying descriptions and instructions like "small screws" and "place in center hole" when there are 4 holes. Blade lock screw and nut either did not match or were cross threaded. Fortunately I like to pre-assemble hardware BEFORE putting any work into the handles. This one is being returned and filed under "waste of time".

    Poor and incomplete instructions. There are much better kits out there, with better design, better instructions, and better quality. May be better if you had prior experience with this kit. I would recommend talking to someone who has built this kit for advice before buying.

    I have completed several knife kits. This one was not the easiest but produced a petit pocket knife that is cool looking and useful. The locking mechanism works great when assembled properly. I was able to acheive a razor sharp edge. It looks beautiful and fits in my pocket.

    Like some of the other reviews, this kit was not that great. Instructions were confusing. My kit was missing two screws. Parts had to be tweaked to work correctly. I wouldn't recommend this as your first knife kit. When making this knife, I would definitely use a practice blank before attempting the final scale.

    Dinkey little knife

    By  Baker Bob

    • Hard to open

    Comments about Sarge Liner Lock Folder-Blade Kit 2 3/4" Closed :

    I suppose I should have noticed how small this knife really is before I bought the kit. I was surprised to find how dull it was compared to the almost razor sharp blade on the larger knife I made first, but that was rectified by some honing. My main complaint would be that it is very difficult to adjust the knife so that the blade moves freely without worrying that the screws will fall out from being too loose. If it wasn't for that I would give it more stars.I would recommend it to a friend with reservations.

    The instructions are extremely poor - no illustrations for parts identification, layout, or assembly. The worse kit I have ever struggled to make.

    Been making knives for +10 years. This is not an easy knife to assemble. I don't like the open back. I thought it had a back liner spline but didn't. I wouldn't buy this folder kit again.

    I'm sort of a beginner so simple line drawings or photos would help greatly to understand the directions.

    Poor Quality!

    Agree with previous review. The blade will not lock without modification to the blade or liner lock. Materials are cheap. Intructions are actually wrong as they tell you to drill four holes instead of three. Even after modification the liner lock barely contacts the blade creating a possible safety issue.
