This week I am modifying some knife pivots from These ones are 3/16″ diameter and made from 416 stainless steel, a very high quality product! They come in a standard “too big” size, so I have to shorten the body and shorten the head, then customize it with my viking head logo. I use aluminum softjaws in my vise to hold the pivots so that I can do several at once.
