+1 on the sheath! If you dont mind my asking, how are those larger medallion like rivets set? That's something I have yet to figure out.

They are riveted on the washers. I hope this makes sense.

Thanks! I think so. So, its essentially a washer with a pin peened and filed flush. Very cool stuff.

 I’ll let jacek answer, but the pin isn’t filed off, just peened. We just don’t see that side in any of the pictures.

The bigger button is made as rivet and its riveted on the long brass strip, which is creates sort of washer for all rivets. I hope this make sense :)
