This is a Loveless-Style Fastener & step drill combo kit. It features 10 Loveless-Style Fasteners in the material and size specified below with the corresponding precision step drill for installation.

Loveless-Style Fasteners were introduced by knife making legend, Bob Loveless, and are used for affixing knife handles. Loveless-Style Fasteners are a 3-piece design and include (2) threaded heads and (1) threaded screw. With this design, you will create a step hole in each side of your handle material that is slightly larger than the shank of the threaded screw. The three-part assembly allows for you to pass the threaded screw precisely through your knife tang hole and handle material, allowing the larger radius of the Loveless-Style fastener heads to create pinch points on both sides of the handle material, where it can then be tightened down using the screw slot to a secure hold. Once the threaded heads have been tightened, the screw head can be removed and the assembly can be sanded to a flush finish with the handle surface. This will result in a very attractive final surface that resembles a bull’s-eye. Using different materials for both screw and heads will further the contrast of the effect. When used with epoxy and/or thread-locker adhesive, they will create a permanent handle bond.
