View Full Version : Knife makers rivets
Does anyone know where i can get the threaded type of knife makers rivets??
I have only been able to find the press together type which you can buy from www.attacc.com but the threaded type look a bit better and easier to use.
I found a supplier in sweden and sent off an email but got no reply so was hoping there might be somewhere in the uk that could supply knife making materials.
Michael, You might try a saddlery shop for rivets. Over here the threaded ones are called 'Chicago Screws.' I find they tend to back out very easily.A bit of nail polish or Loctite keeps things neat.
Or you might try a boat chandlers.
Thanks for the replies.
What type of rivets do other people use as from the replies it doesnt seem as though this type of rivet is readily available.
Is this what your looking for?
How many do you need?
ye they are the ones, i need about 14, do you sell them and how do i contact you ??
I thought you only needed 3-4 pairs wich its all I got...
Check out this site I think they sell what you want http://www.brisa.fi/
If that is for attaching handle slabs, I'd personally get some suitable bolts from Texas Knifemakers - http://www.texasknife.com.
The Chicago screws don't really have the length to stick handle slabs on :-D
Good for sheath making, however.
The web site http://www.brisa.fi/ is just what i was after and they deliver to the uk , it is one of the best sites i have seen for knife making supplies and it gives plenty of technical information on knife making, well worth a look for anyone think/going to make a knife.
