    Newbie here. I found a Smith & Wesson knife in the road. It has been run over many times. However the blade is intact and except for scratches so are the skins. It needs to have some screws and standoffs to make it a serviceable piece. It's of Chinese manufacture so everything is metric. Does anybody here know how I can get these parts. Smith & Wesson does not sell parts. I hate to just pitch it so I'm reaching out to the pros. Thanks

    I vote for pitching it. Buying the replacement screws and standoffs are likely more than what the knife is worth.

    Break it apart and take the blade out drill out a deer antler or some wood and epoxy it in.

    This.

    Those knives are $8.99 on Amazon, buying replacement hardware would be a waste of money.

    Do yourself a favor and just throw it in the trash. It's not worth your time to try to make it serviceable again. That is if you feel that your time is worth something.

    Those are not really worth the effort, but you should be able to find usable screws in a decent hardware store. As for a backspacer you can use wood,plastic or a small piece of aluminum from the hardware.

    These things seem to litter the streets across America! And I agree with what the others have said. Just toss it.
