This is a beautifully handmade traditional Sgian Dubh.
The Sgian Dubh's hand polished pewter mounts, which we make ourselves, feature an open Celtic interlace zoomorphic design with a choice of handle emblem; Thistle (shown), Celtic Knotwork or Masonic symbol. Each hand polished pewter mount is electroplated with palladium, a member of the platinum group of metals, which gives lasting shine and durability.
The pewter mounts are set on both ends of the Sgian Dubh's handle which holds the polished stainless steel blade (blade is approx. 87mm in length). We make the Sgian Dubh handle from real wood effect resin.
An excellent quality coloured glass stone is set into the mount on top of the handle. The stone choices available are: Imitation Smokey Quartz (brown), Imitation Amethyst (purple), Imitation Sapphire (blue), Imitation Emerald (dark green) or Imitation Ruby (dark red).
We handmake the Sgian Dubh scabbard from wood, and bind it in soft black leather. The Sgian Dubh's scabbard is then completed with the open Celtic interlace zoomorphic design pewter mounts. The scabbard grips the polished stainless steel blade with an elegantly reassuring grip.
Total length is approx. 18.5cm (7 ½”) long.
This dress Sgian Dubh is supplied in a quality Celtic Art presentation box and is the perfect finishing touch to your highland dress outfit, and will suitably become an heirloom to treasure.
Exclusively designed and made by us in our Glasgow workshop.
