Those are known as knife rivets or cutlery rivets. Yes, one fits inside the other, and they are then pressed together, typically with a hammer and anvil, to hold the knife scales (handle) in place. Many people also use epoxy along with them for a permanent fixture. The heads of the rivets are thin, so they can be sanded off after assembly. I’m sure there are a bunch of videos and How-To’s out there that can explain it better than me.

Cheers,
Brad
