Great Knife Kits and Training Tools – Build Your Own Knife!

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.

Two of Spyderco’s Best Folding Knives Get a Makeover

Spyderco Kahr Delica Series

Spyderco Kahr Delica Series

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.

Spyderco Lil’ Matriarch: The EDC-Sized Tactical Choice

Spyderco Lil' Matriarch - the EDC-Sized Tactical Choice

If you’re looking for a smaller hawkbill style blade, what better platform could you ask to build off of than the famed Spyderco Delica. The Lil’ Matriarch is the little brother of the new Matriarch 2 and the tiny brother to the Civilian, a specialized tactical design from the early ’90s. The serrated S-Shaped VG-10 blade is not meant for utility tasks but is perfectly designed to act like a claw and rip through anything it encounters. Featuring the exact same handle as the Delica4, all the ergonomics and functions are the same but you get a much more useful knife in emergency life threatening situations. Sharp jimping on the blade spine makes for great control and the four way positional clip, which is parkerized not painted, gives you options. The Lil’ Matriarch is only available in a serrated model but this is in no way a disadvantage as the serrations work ferociously during pull and draw cuts.

The Classic Spyderco Delica Pocketknives, Flat Ground with Pink Handles

The Classic Spyderco Delica Pocketknives, Flat Ground with Pink Handles

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
