Do you know if the joint/pivot between the blade and the handle is a friction fit?

You are correct. Here's a quote from Woodpeckers.

"That's why a boat builder (or anyone who makes stuff “fit”) needs a bevel gauge that can be pressed into or around an angle and hold that angle while transferring to a joining workpiece. Our product developers tested scores of different spring washers and pivot shafts to find just the right balance between moving easily into position and staying there through normal handling. When we got it just right, we had to start all over again, because we decided to offer two different sizes."
