The top half of this page has various handle add-on options/prices.
These handle add-on’s cost extra (like bacon on your burger) over and above the cost
of the kitchen knife. Kitchen knife prices are ⇓ at the bottom part of this page. Prices include choice of wood and bolsters with a carbon steel blade.
Add-ons cost extra, above the prices listed on this page.
A bolster is between the blade and the handle wood and protects the handle wood from absorbing water from the end grain of the handle wood. Water will be soaked up like a sponge without protection.
I use either brass or copper bolsters (3/4″ x 3/8″) , which are pinned/rivets and glued onto the blade steel.
Copper or brass bolsters – copper bolsters cost $20 per knife. Brass bolsters are included in the price of any kitchen knife.
Stainless bolsters – $45.00 per knife. These are secured usually with nickel silver pins or stainless pins. Cost is so high as stainless is rock hard and must be sanded before adding wood handles and spacers- adds.
Copper or brass rivets on handle and bolsters – Each handle has 4 rivets. Butt rivet is my personal chop and is on every knife I make.
There are also 3 more rivets per handle and two per bolster. You can get either brass or copper rivets in each handle which will be in the handle wood. If your bolsters are copper – you can get copper or brass pins.
Brass will contrast with copper and copper of course will blend in. Same with Brass bolsters.
See photo below for an illustration of this. If you do not care, I will always use the same material that the bolster is made of, on the rest of the knife.
