never thought about the butt end of the handle. I was thinking about the guard on the blade side with a little flat neo magnet out of a computer harddrive. they have a metal plate with holes to mount on the handle. they are so strong would suck up a small iron. the neodymium magnet i have, i found it stuck to my WW2 entrencher i use in the woods. have no idea of its origins, but it does come in handy.

the Meteorite Men that used to come on TV. one of then used a board full of these big flat neo magnets and dragged it behind him in the desert areas. found all kinds of small meteorites.

i picked a tore up roadkill shop rolling magnetic nail and bolt sweeper up out of the road. i salvaged the big flat bar. not neo's but strong magnets. soap bar size and about 3/8 in thick. about 5 of them on the plate. been thinking... used them in a fire recovery to get out iron nails and washed the ashes and recovered some jewelery in the nasty stuff, dumping the ashes in a round half gallon round cage used for crickets when fishing. sloshed it up and down in a five gallon water bucket. worked great.

i do recommend the neodymium.. i never spell that right, they are the type they test for meteorites with.

for Christmas .... a hernia repair 8 wks healing so a light hunt, and a real Fishing magnet! lol. just got to try it.
