Practical assembly system with screws and cutlery cylinder nuts.
Designed and developed by Robert Waldorf Loveless, the world-famous American knife maker, this assembly system judiciously replaces the traditional rivets with rosette to assemble handles of knives with fixed full tang blades.
The assembly becomes easier, more precise and the tightening by screw of the handle plates better controlled by avoiding possible incidents due to repeated hammer blows on the rivets.
How does it work?
This Loveless screw assembly system does not require a hammer.
This screw assembly consists of a Ø4 mm x 40 mm (0.16 x 1.6in) long screw and two Ø7 mm x 6 mm (0.28 x 0.24in) long threaded cylinder nuts.
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 cylinders. The two cylinder nuts must be held sufficiently to prevent them from turning when screwed on, but not excessively so to avoid any undue stress on the handle inserts.
Screw in one of the cylinders until it comes to rest on the screw head, 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 Phillips screwdriver until it contacts and lock the assembly moderately but firmly.
All that remains is to cut off the screw head 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 (1.4in) thick.
After sanding and polishing, these Loveless brass screws and stainless steel nuts combine the brilliance of stainless steel with the golden reflections of brass for an old-fashioned rivet appearance, perfectly circular, with steel wire and rosettes, avoiding any risk of breakage following an impact, for example.
