A spacer is a design element of a knife that can be used as a decorative component of a typesetting bolster, as well as instead of the bolster itself (a spacer thickness of 1.5 mm allows this) in lightweight knife handle designs with short blades.
Almost any materials can be used as decorative and reinforcing spacers, from various kinds of metals, plastics, fibers to materials of animal origin (bone, tooth, tusk, leather).
The spacers are made of stainless steel grade 04X18H9 (AISI 304) and are an ellipse, along the contour of which you can easily adjust the adjacent handle. Since the material of the handle is usually much softer than stainless steel, when fitting with sanding, it is recommended to apply it (sanding) to a hard base in order to avoid parasitic sampling on the handle at the junction with the bolter.
Stainless steel is the most practical material for bolsters. Stainless steel is relatively cheap, polishes well, is more resistant to mechanical damage (scratches, dents, matting, etc.) than copper-based non-ferrous metal alloys (brass, bronze, cupronickel). In addition, stainless steel does not form a galvanic pair with the blade and, accordingly, does not cause corrosion at the point of contact between the structural parts of the knife. Stainless steel, as a rule, fits well into any knife design because it is close to the blade in color shades and has a neutral character in the inlay of the handle.
The slot in the 12x3mm and 12x2mm delivery will also fit the shanks of most blades used for flush mounting.
