By popular demand we introduced the white handle kit for the Honey Badger range of knives. Honey Badger knives come in 3 sizes and so does the white handle kit. Note that these handles are designed to only fit the later model Honey Badger knives that have the left/right switchable pocket clip.
The problem that many folks who dye their handles were facing is that unless you are dying a white substrate the resulting color is not what you expect. As you can see below this apricot orange came out pretty much as one would expect. The left side of the scale was left in the dye for 3 minutes and the right side for 1 minute.
And so the White Handle Kit became a reality.
Of course there is nothing to stop you creating your own white knife by fitting the white handle kit to an existing Honey Badger knife.
It’s really easy to remove and refit the scales.
All of the later L/R Honey Badger knives have one large pivot screw, 2 body screws and 4 pocket clip screws. Note as you remove these smaller screws that there 2 different sizes. A smaller screw is used in the lower pocket clip position on both sides.
Note that the pivot screw can only be unscrewed from the side opposite to the pocket clip. Sometimes these can be a bit tight depending on how much thread-lock compound was applied at the factory. You may need to use a beefier T8 torx driver.
Note also that because you are disassembling the L/R version of the Honey Badger knife that there is a small metal insert in place of the pocket clip on the side opposite to the pocket clip. Don’t forget to reinsert this (it can only go one way) when reassembling the knife.
