    Well....homemade rivet drove sideways and tore up the handle.....so....went a different route after seeing others with leather grips.
    Really comfy...needs a bit refining and sharpening but were going to the beach!

    I bought cutlers rivets, but haven't had any luck with them. They seem to split or won't go together straight, so now use pins and epoxy.
