This is what I'm trying to figure out :) I was under the impression that
they were folded over the edge of the blade and rivited down the back of
the blade. The blade shape I'm dealing with has the straight angled drop
point common to sax with a ruler-straight edge. It's also over a foot
If I rivet the copper over the edge (as seems sensible with this blade)
how do I get the fold over the back of the blade to follow the drop to
the point without lots of ugly creases and ripples?
