Nothing says “I love you” like a gift that is made from the heart…and the hands. With so many kits, plans and How-Tos available at Woodcraft, you are sure to find something fantastic to make for your loved ones no matter your skill level. Here are a few ideas to get you started!
Nice knife with one reservation.
I purchased 4 of the following kits at the local Woodcraft store and a couple from mailorder. Fillet Knife for Hunting and Fishing - 12" - 440C SS - Unfinished Kit Item 161951 Model A04M The pins included in the kits should be about a 1/4 inch longer so they stick out an 1/8th or so from the outside of the scales. The ones included in the kits don't stick out at all when using scale material that is 3/8 thick, as suggested in the instructions. On the first one, I ended up having to make my own pins out of some round copper rod I had. Hope this helps you and perhaps someone else. John
Great beginners kit
I really like the design and shape of the knife. The sheath that comes with it is nice and the kit comes with everything you need except the scales and the epoxy. The directions are also helpful for weekend warriors. After buying the kit and the scales in total cost me $45. If I didn’t have a free shipping code it would of been $55. In my opinion, there is no money to be made if trying to make and resell. The quality of metal would make me feel guilty if I sold it for anything more than what I have into it. The blade showed up bent like other reviewers stated, but was able to bend it back. That right there tells me it needs to have a better temper and if you filleted one fish with it, I doubt it would go back to its normal shape. One side of The collar in between the blade and handle was separated so it looked like it was cracked. Overall, good practice and will make a good gift for Father’s Day.
I made three of these knives for my son and grandsons, they came out nice but when we took one out of the sheath it was bent, the steel is soft enough that I bent it back to almost straight. I think that they are not a very high quality hardened steel.
Son loves it, easy build.
Made one for my son with cocobolo scales. Just followed the instructions. Son filleted forum King salmon and a halibut. States the knife was awesome.
Great way to make gifts
I've ordered 4 already and will order more asap. Good quality and sharp edge. I wanted to make knives in various laminated wood colors to match gun and knife sets that I am building for my sons and I ( matching pistol grips, rifle stocks, hunting knives, etc). With the sheath, this makes a quality set that any sportsman can appreciate and it makes for a touch of uniqueness. Great gift!
I have put together 3 of these fillet knife kits and they are great! I have used different wood species and all have turned out great. The stainless blank has a sharp, flexible yet strong blade, too. Even the sheath has a locking snap to secure the knife. I will continue to use this product!
Great gift...High quality Stainless blade.
I have done many of the WoodCraft kits, and several stand out, most noticeably this fillet knife and the Zhen chef knives. I used the new Mosaic pins in my handle (Woodcraft item #162622) with a dyed, stabilized Spalted Tamarind handle, and it came out gorgeous. The blade is well made, high quality Stainless, and takes a fine edge...and the kit is inexpensive when on sale...makes a great gift, if you can part with it after you're done...(I decided not to give mine away)
