years ago lee valley offered sabatier blades, pre wwII .. they had been shipped to america prior to the Nazi invasion of France and languished in a warehouse. they did not have scales but were sold with the copper rivets just like the ones in Chef Niloc's post

in truth i thinkn less you wanted to go full on classic (you can do the same look with corby bolts) corbys are better holding and lock down the scales better

There's not much head on cutlers rivets so the sides of the scales need to be relatively flat as the don't give much lee-way for rounding, in conjunction with epoxy will be more than sufficient for kitchen knives IMO. Corby and loveless bolts are alternatives that will act to bolt everything together

The other day I was watching a video of either Wusthoff or Zwilling-Henckels being put together and they still use the old school rivets albeit stinless ones I presume and the knives are placed in the little auto feed benchtop "rivet press" by hand. Although most of the process of making one of those forged German knives is automated nowadays, it appears that a bit of the finishing process is still done by hand.

I think you are talking about bird's eye rivets or loveless bolts. I have a few of those on some of my antique chef knives.
