I especially like pre-made pins when reassembling a knife with old bone handles. There’s always that fear of tapping that backspring pin just once more and hearing that nauseating little crack sound. ::facepalm::
With one side of the pin already peened I figure I reduce my chances of a bone crack by 50%! ::pray::
They’re just handy to have around.

I totally agree!
This is my new procedure now! Peen one end before sticking it through the handle!
