Build-A-Knife-Box : The Scout

$55.00

Have you ever wanted to build a knife, but you didn't have the right tools?

It can be expensive to set up an entire workshop, and it's hard to know exactly where to start. That's why we created the Build-A-Knife-Box. This is the easiest entry into knife making for a beginner, and a great kit for those with a practiced hand.

This kit comes with a the following:

  • The "Scout" Knife blank water jet by Flow Water Jet (3/16 thick 1080 steel)
  • 1x Brass pin to be cut into 3 pins (6" x 1/8" )
  • 2x Ironwood Handle Scales (5" x 1.75" x 3/8")
  • 1x HSS Black Oxide Jobber Length Drill Bit for drilling the handle scales (1/8")


You start with a knife, blank water jet by Flow Water Jet out of 3/16 thick 1080 steel. We even cut the holes into the steel to make your life easier. All you need to do is grind the bevels onto the knife, cut your pins, and drill holes into the handle scales. After you've done that, you'll profile your handle, glue it all up, and then have an awesome utility knife!

Once you've created your knife, be sure to post a photo of it tagging us, @alecsteeleco, and the #buildaknife tag for a chance to win $200 to this online store!

No purchase necessary to enter, just create a knife along the same style and the same materials.
