    I've ordered this model and it was to be a user. The scales are glued I suspect as there are no rivets. I like using my knives but I'm wondering if I'm making a mistake with this model? Can anyone tell me if this knife should hold up to normal use like the riveted models or would I be wiser to regulate it to the drawer and buy the typical low end model?

    :D Didn't hold up too well Terry...I slammed mine, which was not riveted, only 26 times with a 16 pound sledge and sure enough...the scale chipped:eek: :eek: ...LOL...Jus' kidding Terry:D . Glued or glued and riveted, those knives are built to take it. Recall reading a thread somewhere that said that the rivets almost could be considered decorative because the "glue" used is so strong. I use virtually all my knives...some I "use up" and some I use sparingly. I'd hate to be a knife and not cut somethin'...:thumbup:

    Terry,

    You'd be amazed how much glue gets used in airplane construction. I wouldn't be too worried about the knife.
