Glenn Klecker's son, Nathan, came up with this idea for a pre-cut, easily assembled softwood knife kit. Naturally, we named it Nathan's Knife Kit in his honor. Not only is it an easy first woodworking project, but it is an excellent way to acquaint children, seven years of age and older, with the fundamentals of knife safety and responsibility. The kit is slightly oversized for easy assembly by young hands, and comes with complete instructions and knife safety education tips. Depending on the skill of the child, the knife can be assembled from the bag by press fit, or it can be sanded, glued, sealed, stained, painted and decorated as desired.
