We have a great collection of do-it-yourself knife sets, training tools, and wooden knives that are perfect for those of us who don’t just want to collect knives, we want to put them together ourselves. Better yet, why not make it a fun holiday activity and get everyone in on the action? While many of these knives are designed with unsharpened edges, keep in mind they are still knives. They’re not toys – they’re teaching tools. These kits and training knives are perfect for educating your friends and family about the ins and outs of knife maintenance, care, and how to operate knives safely. There are a ton of options that range from cool fidget spinners to wooden practice folders, but we have a few favorites we recommend checking out.
From folders to trappers to tactical knives, Jameson Woodworks’ Knife Kits feature hand cut DIY kits that you can put together with your family or friends for the ultimate holiday bonding experience. These are USA-made and super affordable, making them terrific stocking stuffers. You can also easily sand down the points on these wooden models a bit more if you plan on letting younger kids get in on the fun, too. If you want to forgo the wooden pieces in favor of plastic, Klecker Knives has some great folding plastic knife kits in a variety of colors.
The Endura and Delica, two of Spyderco’s most popular folding pocket knives, got a serious glow up with these new FRN Zome Camo handles. Zome is an ancient Japanese art form that focuses on dyeing textiles using dyes from plants, flowers, fruit, and other natural sources. Take a look at KnifeCenter’s review where we dive into what makes these handles so unique!
Three great knives based on one of Spyderco’s most popular and time proven designs – the Delica 4 Lightweight. In its standard configuration, the Delica features a 2-7/8″ VG10 stainless steel blade. The Kahr Arms version have a shorter 2-1/2″ blade with a reverse tanto-ish sort of blade for added strength toward the tip. To further enhance the Kahr Delica’s discreet image, it is available with a choice of three different handle colors: black, khaki and denim blue to match your daily attire and each comes with a four-position clip for you’re preferred carry style.

It was only a matter of time… once Spyderco brought out a range of colors for the Delica with flat ground blades, we knew pink was coming soon enough. Well, that time is now. The Delica with a flat ground blade may be the best Every Day Carry made-in our humble opinion. Having it in pink makes it a great choice for the fairer sex-or as I have always maintained, a great choice for a guy who doesn’t want his friends stealing his knife…
