Yeh from what I know those "pivot screws" are used on a folder as a pivot (hence the name) yeh you could use them as screw to hold scales to a tang but its going to take some fidleing to get the length right where there are other screws that are really ment to put scales on a tang that would be much much easier to use and you will still be able to remove the scales later some have been listed above like the JP may have luck using those pivot screws but most likely it will give you more of a headache than they are worth when you can do the exact same thing much eaiser with other fasteners. I have been making knives for a couple years now never once have I used a pivot screw on anything but a folder. Because really ther is no reason to makes things harder than it needs to be, but yes it can be done

Thanks for all of the help. The new guy was looking for the wrong thing. One more dumb question What's a KITH?

Knife In The Hat, every one who wants to makes a knife according to the subject (this time it is a bird and trout knife) then everyone grades each others knives and then we all swap when its done

I like the mini-corbys in both sizes. Jantz sells them as well as the bit to properly counter-sink for each size. They just look like pins.

I never could get past that 'half-moon' of epoxy that is visible in the threads of the loveless bolts once you grind it flush.

Mr. Garrett try 1/8" loveless bolts if that's the proper name for such tiny little screws. Here are a couple of pictures of a 1/8" loveless screw.

People wonder why I like small pins and here are a couple of reasons. 1/8" loveless are perfect for small knives.
