Commonly referred to as a "Cutlery Rivet", these 2-part press-rivets are excellent when used for knife handle fasteners. To use them, drill a through-hole through your handle material for the shaft to pass through, then create a larger stepped hole for the head to recess in. The head on both sides of the rivet will then be sanded along with the surface of the handle material to create a seamless surface connection. Cutlery rivets have been used for many years to fasten handles on some of the most famous knives ever made. Knife handle rivets are extremely easy to use. They are joined by using a hammer and anvil surface to press the two parts together and can be epoxied for a permanent handle treatment.
