Knife Making Kit 10.5cm Carbon Steel Blade

Are you tempted to try to make your own Scandinavian style bushcraft knife?  This kit contains the essential components for making a high quality bushcraft knife, including:-

A 10.5cm long Blade  which measures 2.5cm wide and 2.5mm thick. It is made from high quality 1770 Carbon steel (HRC 57). The blade extends with an "internal tang" that is 11cm long.

A Handle Block- made from curly birch measuring approx. 12cm x 3cm x 5cm.
A Reindeer Antler piece - 1.5cm thick. This piece is suited in size to the brass bolster and is ideal to include as part of the handle closest to the bolster.
A Sheath Leather - Vegetable tanned 3mm thick piece of brown stiffer leather for the sheath measuring 25cm x 12cm.
Inner sheath - made from strong plastic to give the sheath shape and to protect it from the blade.
String - approx 1m strong white string for stitching the sheath.
A Brass bolster - creates a strong and neat transition between the handle and the blade.
A Reindeer leather strip- a thinner approx. 40cm long vegetable tanned strip/thread of lighter flexible and very strong reindeer leather for the belt-hanger.

What do our instructors think? Here Jo writes:

"I think these kits make great presents and its worth spending the time to do a good job of building your knife. The sense of achievement you will get from making and using a knife you have made yourself is second to none. For what you will end up with in the end, a good quality Scandinavian style knife, I think they are well priced.”

Advantages: Great for people who want to have a go at building their own knife but with the flexibility to personalise it. All the components are included, easy to follow instructions in English. Blade is made from Carbon steel therefore easier to sharpen than Stainless steel.

Disadvantages: Takes time to make – don’t rush it!

It is illegal to supply a knife to anyone under the age of 18. Woodland Ways actively checks the details of all orders for knives, and other edged items. Should we be unable to confirm your eligibility, you will be asked to provide proof of age in the form of a photocopy of your drivers licence or passport.
