20 x Corby Bolts, Stainless Steel (1/4", 6.5 mm)
Medium size corby bolt in steel, for securing handle scales to full-tang knife blades.
These are often used in addition to epoxy glue, for both looks and additional attachment strength of the handle scales.

The centre section is 4.69 mm thick and is the part that goes through the blade.
The bolt is threaded, consisting of two pieces that when tighetend is ground down to sit flush with the handle scales.
This is for a set of 20 bolts.

Service and delivery is excellent, bolts are great
Quite nice quality machining, although the shaft below the thread could be left a bit thicker - this is where I have had many smaller Corby’s snap when tightening them up snug. Haven’t applied them to a handle yet so we’ll see how they go.
Corby bolts from Bjorn ( Creative Man ) are really top quality.
They look like they are made on a CNC Machine and the sizes are highly accuracy.
They are one of the strongest fasteners for handles.
Probably the biggest advantage of Corby bolts is that they eliminate the need for clamps. You put the epoxy on the tang, and a little bit in the holes through the scales, insert the Corby parts and assemble the handle. Tighten only snug, wipe off excess epoxy, check the sides for gaps and alignment, tighten/adjust a tad more if needed ( Do Not Over torque) and set it aside to cure.
