A Special Christmas Present

My nephew's son gave me a really fun present this year.  It was a Spyderco knife kit.

But . . .

. . . it is made from wood!  It is constructed exactly like other knives.

I 'sharpened' the blade using a sanding block, then inserted the pins into one side of the handle.

I then inserted the knife blade and the spring lock mechanism.

I added the other side of the handle . . .

. . . and had a fully functioning Spyderco knife!  The folding lock mechanism works like a charm.  I have to decide if I want to stain the handle.  Hmmm . . .

Uncle Tractor had fun with this project!
