Alright might open a can of worms here. I am looking for more experienced makers thoughts on relieving liners and pivot bushings. My concerns would be lack of support for the blade tang with relieved liners. As for the pivot bushing my concern would be the limited amount of metal left around the pivot hole if using a bushing. I am mostly worried that these things may effect the longevity of the knife. I have yet to put these two things to the test myself so that is why I pose this question. I wish to build quality pieces that are meant to be used.
