Looks good Goater. I use loveless bolts too. That cocobolo has an unusual grain for its type. Very straight, one of my faves too. O1 and cocobolo done in a clean and tight package that is good looking. What's not to like? Although I'd blue it cause I blue all my O1 hunting knives.lol

Are those 3/16" loveless bolts and if they are where did you get them? I only know two places to get that size and another place for 1/8" loveless and corbys. I prefer small pins on my handles and it's a hassle having to order from two different places and screws are better than pins especially with oily rosewoods like cocobolo.

I like this design a lot, I make one similar to it I call my bird and trout knife. Jim, I know Jantz carries 3/16 and 5/32 in the brass and stainless corby bolts

No, they are 1/4". Got them from Jantz. As HC ^^ noted above, Jantz has some Corbys in 3/16" and some Acorn nuts. A quick glace in the catalog and I do not see Loveless bolts in 3/16".

How big is that thong hole?

Jephco has 3/16 corbys, but no Loveless that size. They have 1/8" loveless screws, but no 3/16. Sheffield's has 3/16 loveless though.
It's a nice tight unit, was just wondering, Jantz is twice the price as Jephco.

Thanks for the link Jim. Their corbys and loveless bolts are considerably cheaper.
