Frequently Asked Questions
What is Relic?
Relic is a company formed on the belief that digital natives crave offline experiences. We're natural makers with creative ideas to spare, so let's use this creativity to learn some timeless skills. Our team at Relic imagines and then curates each kit to ensure we're setting you up for success, from quality, made in the USA contents, to easy-to-follow video instructions and an active support community. Relic isn't just what's in the box, it's the learnings you'll now be able to apply tomorrow.

How big will the knife be once assembled?
The assembled knife will be 7.25" open, 4.25" closed
How long does it take to assemble?
Depending on how fast you work, it could take as little as 20 minutes or as much time as an hour to complete.
Where are the materials made?
Using top-notch tools and materials is very important to us. That said, we're doing our best to source every item in our kits from the US–ideally from family-owned businesses, but occasionally we need to source products from overseas. We do our best to limit those instances.
Is Relic only for guys?
No way. While many of the skills may historically be considered masculine, male genitalia are not required to complete any of our kits. In fact, having it may pose an additional risk–but hey, you know what you're getting into.
Are Relic kits suitable for kids?
The blade is really sharp. However, with proper adult supervision and patience, this is a great kit to work on with your children.
What if I have a question or lose a piece during assembly?
Each kit ships with a QR code that when scanned, will give you access to a step-by-step video tutorial as well as a link to ask our team any questions along the way. You're also welcome to use our contact form if you have any questions in the meantime.
What if I don't like it after I receive it?
Bummer. If you don't like your kit, contact us and we'll do our best to make it right. Your satisfaction is our top priority.
