    Awesome 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!

    Great kit, well balanced knife

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

    Reasonable 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.

    Great Knife Blade

    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.

    Lots of fun

    This is a fun simple project that can be done by a beginner with limited tools. I completed this with the countersinks, epoxy, clamps, and file set.

    excellent knife kit for the price

    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

    Nice starter knife kit

    The only draw back is that there are no "alinement pins" included for the handle sides, I had to "make" alinement pins using nails, 2 different size pieces of (color coded) rod that fit the holes in the blank would greatly aid in the alinement and drilling
