In response to MikeStewart
@MikeStewart-Yes, they have. If you think I over think things then you should meet my dad lol. And I make my knives individually and put around 15-20 hours in each knife. I have blood, sweat, and time into each one. The reason why I want to flare the ends of the tubing is because I want it to last and stand up to rough use. A mechanical bond is alot stronger than a chemical bond. Thank you very much for the information. Do you know anywhere that I can get a chamfering tool? Also, would you mind posting your website if you have one please? Thanks!
@Nasty-I agree with you on the issue of just breaking down the edge. Lanyard holes, in general, aren't used every time the knife is used or even often.
@Lonepine-I have never used tubing for a lanyard hole, but I believe copper and brass should be what you start with because it is a little easier to work with. My client told me that she wanted bolsters on the end instead of the tubing.
Thanks to everyone for all their help!
