Practical assembly system with screws and cylinder nuts.
Designed and developed by Robert Waldorf Loveless, the world famous American knife maker, this assembly system will perfectly replace the traditional rivets with rosette to assemble handles of knives with fixed full tang or flat sole blades.
The assembly becomes easier, more precise and the tightening by screw of the handle plates better controlled by avoiding possible incidents due to the repeated hammering of the rivets.
Principle of use.
This Loveless screw assembly system does not require the use of a hammer.
This screw assembly consists of a stainless steel screw Ø4 mm x 40 mm long (0.16 x 1.6in) and two brass cylinder nuts Ø7 mm x 6 mm long (0.28 x 0.24in).
After drilling the handle plates for the screw, drill the plates again to a diameter slightly smaller than that of the Ø7 mm (0.28in) nuts with a maximum depth of 6 mm (0.24in) to make the housings for the two cylinder nuts. The two cylinder nuts must be held sufficiently to prevent them from turning when tightened, but not too tightly to avoid undue stress on the handle pads.
Screw one of the cylinders onto the screw head until it stops, then engage the assembly on one side of the handle.
Then position the second cylinder on the other side of the handle and tighten with a 3 mm (0.12in) hexagonal key until it touches the screw head and lock the assembly moderately but firmly.
All that remains is to cut off the screw heads on one side and the protruding part of the screw on the other side of the handle, sand and polish the whole assembly for a sturdy and permanent fit.
This practical Loveless assembly system can be used to assemble all types of knife handles up to 40 mm thick (1.6in).
The aesthetics and charm of the old days.
After sanding and polishing, these Loveless stainless steel screws and brass nuts have the appearance of the old-fashioned steel wire rivets and brass rosettes that were the charm of the knives of yesteryear.
The Loveless stainless steel screw and brass nut system reminds us of this elegance while avoiding the risk of breakage following an impact, for example.
