Bolster N 16x24 R
Bolsters are used in Nordic knife making as a fitting between the blade and handle. No bolster will fit directly, they will all need some work to fit the blade you have. This is one of the finer parts of the craft, and a well-done bolster fitting will be its own reward.
All bolsters are 3mm thick, brass or nickel silver.
Specific alloy brass: CW508L (CuZn37)
Specific alloy nickel silver: CW403J (CuNi12Zn24)
The material of the bolster is stated in the product name as a N for nickel silver or German silver, and B for brass. Sizes are given as width x height in mm followed by a R for a rectangular hole or a V for a V shaped hole.
Most blades have recommended bolsters as related items, these will be the closest fitting ones that are good to start working from. Most bolster holes are 3mm wide which makes these unsuitable for thinner blades. For these the only option is the bolster with the fillet hole, or you can make custom bolsters or guards from 3mm or thicker brass, nickel silver or bronze sheets.
