There’s nothing better than building something with your kids, watching the process of discovery in their eyes and their sense of accomplishment grow. Father-and-son team Glen and Nathan Klecker understand get it too. And after having developed the wooden Nathan’s Knife Kit, they’ve come back better than ever with an all-plastic version called the Trigger Knife Kit.

Author Tim Stetzer writes, “Unlike the wooden kit, which comes as a bag of precut parts, the Trigger Knife Kit comes with all of the pieces molded onto a plastic model sprue… I think I let out a gasp when I saw it.” The Trigger Knife Kit is a little closer to scale for a lockback pocketknife than the wooden version is, and its plastic molding makes for finer details, such as the bolster and woodgrain scales and the blade’s grind. Read more about the kit and the author’s and his son’s build process in the November 2013 issue of Tactical Knives, available on newsstands and digitally on July 23, 2013. To subscribe, go to
