These rivets are made especially for RW. He has all four pieces of the brass the same and there's a stainless steel screw through the center. Most rivets on the market are 5/16" long X 3/8" thick. These are 5/16" long X 3/16" thick. Most handle material is 3/8" thick, so when you grind down on your handles, the brass gets hot because it is too long and it burns a circle around your rivet. That's why RW's are only 3/16" thick. Your choices of rivets are blind rivets set brass or regular rivets set brass w/stainless screw.
