Custom Made Sgian Dubh Celtic Knot Sheath Bog Oak Proper St. Patricks Day Attire:
Tired of looking at those junk Sgain Dubhs to accessorize you traditional Kilt wear? I mean after laying out the funds to get proper kit attire are you going to stick one of those lame replica Sgian Dubhs in your sock? I should hope not. I allowed my Scottish & Irish heritage to influence my knife making and looked into the history of these fine pieces of utility cutlery. I have gone into producing some of these fine knives that my forefathers would have worn as part of their daily attire. I looked into some museum pieces for the traditional designs that these knives would have been made. This is one of those designs. As would have been used then as one of the hardest materials that would be available for handles, I make all of my Sgian Dubh handles out of Bog Oak from various regions that I can find. Some is Irish, some is British, some is Scottish. To try and stay within the area for resourcing materials, I am currently Sandvik 12c27 steel. It is a stainless steel from Sweden although I do have other steels available. This Sandvik steel has excellent knife blade properties, but it does require some fairly specialized processing in the hardening procedure.
The Blade on this one is as Mentioned Sandvik 12C27 and is 3 3/4" long and 1" wide. Hand File Work on the back spine.The Handle is 5000 year old Bog Oak from the Fenland Bog.The fittings are antique brass.The sheath is hand made in a studio on the shores of Loch Ness and has a beautiful embossed celtic knot on the front.Comes with certificate of authenticity which include specifics of all of the materials.
So here is your chance to slip an authentic Sgian Dubh into your sock for St. Patricks Day! Don't miss out, all of your kilt wearing friends will be jealous! This is completely hand made and is one of a kind.
Let me know if you have any questions!
Thanks for looking
