Bolster R35E, Nickel Silver (35 x 17 x 3 mm, slit 3.2 x 19 mm)
Nickel Silver version of the bolster R35E. (note the Extended or longer slit than on the R35)
Bolsters is an easy way to get a good looking fit between handle and blade.
The handle piece can then have a bigger hole for the blade tang without this being visible.
The slit in the bolster is about 3.2 x 19 mm and the bolster is 3 mm thick.
These are stamped out and most blade/bolster combinations will need some work to fit together.
Filing the sides of the blade tang using a hand file or dremel is a good way to get a tigth fit.
Often the face of the bolster is sanded flat on a piece of glass or tile, then sanded to the wanted finish before being attached to the blade.
This is a lot easier than trying to sand it with the blade in.
Please note on page for the blade you are looking at, what the right bolster is.
