A 'test standard'.
The position of the pin holes in both the tang and handle scales are also critical and this standard makes it easy to quickly check that in a qualitative fashion.
The edge of the handle scale must be within 0.0005" of the edge of the tang for it to feel 'flush' (human fingers are very sensitive!) so I really need to keep my tolerances very close to get the fit and finish that I want!
