Does anyone know what the thread spec is for a Muhle R41?
I am embarked on a silly project to make my own custom handle, and I'd like to tap it correctly.

For those who are curious, I have an antique faux-ivory handle from a nail file and I'm trying to drill and tap it to accept the R41 head. Possibly with a brass insert for strength. Thank You,

Well I did a Google search and confirmed at my local hardware store, it seems to be an M5 x 0.8 (whatever that means).
