Cut Above Hunting KnifeComments (0)
Customize a sharp handle for a super sharp blade.
By Tom Kreger
Every successful hunter deserves a respectable knife for skinning, cutting tent line, slicing jerky, and for the countless other tasks that they may encounter in the great outdoors. To have one with an eye-grabbing handle that you fashioned in the shop–now that’s special. Starting with this popular hunting knife kit, I’ll show you how to cut the wooden scales that make up the handle, bond them firmly to the blade’s tang using epoxy and pins, and then shape and finish the scales for a dazzling look.
In all, you’ll find the experience fast, easy on the wallet, and personally rewarding. Besides the kit, all you’ll need is a small piece of scrap (I used figured maple) and a few basic tools and supplies.
