EnZo Necker Kit, Flat Grind with Ivory Micarta Scales
High quality EnZo blade, full flat grind and handle materials in this kit for making your own necker knife.
This kit consists of
- High quality EnZo Necker 70 blade, flat grind
- Ivory linen micarta handle scales, 8 mm thick
- Lanyard tube, brass (rear handle hole)
- Corby bolt, brass (front handle hole)
- 3 mm rod, brass (for 2 smaller holes, optional)
- Free sheath: choose either leather or Kydex sheath (see options)
The "Necker" blade from EnZo is a short, sharp blade aimed at carrying around the neck or in a backpack, as opposed to belt carry.
The blade is about 3.2 mm thick, about 22 mm wide and has about 70 mm of blade, total length 160 mm.
The blade is in Swedish 12c27 Stainless Steel with satin finish, combining with the EnZo build quality and attention to fit and finish, into a high-quality knife.
The handle scales are in linen micarta, a popular syntethic handle material due to good grip and resistance to the elements.

Work required is to glue on the scales to the blade using Epoxy glue after having drilled the holes for corby bolt and lanyard tube.
Optionally, drill the 2 smaller holes if also using the brass rod.
Securely screw down the Corby bolt, then file or grind the bolt down flush with the handle scales when the glue is dry.
Grind or file the profile of the handle until the scales are even with the steel handle profile of the tang.
Then start shaping the handle by rounding the edges of the micarta scales, until the shape feels right to you.
As the brass is harder to sand than the micarta, it is helpful to wrap some sandpaper around something hard like a file and run over the brass details at every grade before moving to a finer sand paper. To avoid the brass details being left higher than the micarta.
Then sand the scales and finish them with oil, dye, wax or similar to seal them for improved durability.
