The name brass is derived from the color. It is clearly yellower than pure copper or bronze (an alloy of copper and tin). When the material is exposed to the outside air for a long time, it becomes dark brown.
Brass is a valuable material because of its hardness and good self-lubricating properties.
Use these Corby style bolts to connect handles to a knife pliers.
For a full tang knife:
You drill a hole in the tang the size of the shaft. Then you drill part way through the handle material the diameter of the shoulder.
For a hidden tang knife:
Dry mount your handle to the hidden tongs so it does not move. Drill a hole through both handle and pliers in one pass. Then drill the handle material to the diameter of the shoulder.
Screw the two parts together fastening the scales to the tang. The ends of the bolts are slotted so that you can tighten the bolt. When you have it tight, you are grind off the excess bolt material leaving a nice pin showing. You can also grind the shaft and / or threads to short them up. The shoulder and shaft are almost longer than the thickest handle / tang combination.
