Wooden Pocket Knife Kit Teaches Knife Mechanics to Kids

Back in December of last year, I showed you a wooden knife kit by Garrett Wade that helps show kids how pocket knives work. I have an alternative kit that is less expensive, requires no tools for assembly and has nicer looking chunky parts. It’s Nathan’s Knife Kit from Klecker Knives. Klecker’s website even has a Hall of Fame area where they post pictures of kids with the knives they’ve made. This would make a great afternoon project with your kids… or even yourself 😉

    It looks good for Boy Scout Tot & Chip class before using live blade. I gotta check this one out.

    Looks like something a hijacker would want to get through scanners at the airport like the credit card knife that was reviewed earlier. I know, I know, paranoid about nothing.

    I did think about John Malkovich from In the Line of Fire movie.
    You can actually modify Club for car steering wheel to be used as a shotgun according to police report yrs ago. Even wooden chopstick or Kabob skewer can be as dangerous as anything. What a world we live in…

    It’s a wonderful tool for teaching kids about responsible knife usage. FYI…the plastic ware on a plane is sharper than this knife..LOL.

    A Hijacker that can hijack a plane using a giant wooden knife (or nail clippers) Does not need to use either to get the job done. Side note. I was flying to Vegas for a conference and was leaving the Fresno Yosemite airport. We go through security metal detectors, and all that, now we are on the “SAFE” side of the airport. We enter the Sierra restaurant, for lunch, My lunch comes with this huge steak knife. I’ve got my carry on right next to me. How hard would it be to SLIP this giant knife into my carry on? Stupid Stupid Stupid. Oh well. They got drug sniffing dogs to keep me safe, but what I really want are body odor sniffing dogs, “Sorry sir, you set off the body odor alarm, you can’t board this flight”
