    Are the holes in the blade tang where you’re fitting the handle 10mm?

    Try some of the knife makers here, Stew, Chris Claycomb, HillBill, Mark177, for suppliers or maybe offcuts. They’ll be more in touch than me. There was a US eBay guy who became a BritishBlades member who made literally hundreds of mosaic pins. The US knife supply sites might be a good bet, the Americans like the decoration perhaps more than us Brits.

    And “This Thread Is Useless Without Pics”, so you’ve gotta show the results of your labour. :)
