    Hey all,

    I have been thinking of trying to "build" a knife from a kit. These kits feature a blade that is done and all that needs to be added is a handle. The handle is the only part of it that has to be made by you. I know it's not actual KNIFE MAKING, but it's something to start with and see if it's something that you would want to pursue further.

    I would like to try a FIXED blade kit from Knifekits.com. I'd like to see if there is anyone else that has done this or has wanted to try it. If you have done it or are doing it, how about posting your work and telling about your experiences.

    Also if there is another source you use for finished or partially finished blades that need a handle, how about posting a link?


    Thanks for the help.

    Built one a few years ago, came out really nice. It was from knife kits. I gave it as a present so no pictures. Blade was nice, I did some extra polishing on it. Not a whole lot to it, I took my time with the handles. No surprises at all. I was happy with it.

    Good way to start and see if you like making knives.
