Those look like a press fit rivet. Not sure, I have never used them. However for the knives I make I just use brass rod. Whether you use a rivet or rod, doesn’t really matter they are there just to help position the scales. They don’t provide much, if any, “holding” power. What matters is the epoxy bond. This means you can use just about anything for the pins. Brass is the easiest, if I am not using solid brass, then I “pretty” them up with shop made mosaic pins.
