Hi Folks

It's been a big push, but working between Christmas orders I have finally finished off a few more Sgian Dubh Coruisks. Here is the first...

The blade is crafted in Böhler M390 stainless steel - a very high performance powder mettalurgy 'super' steel. This modern steel enables the lustrous satin sheen on the blade and has excellent corrosion resistance and edge retention.

The brass bolster is solid and not just a ferrule (metal band around the wood). Behind the bolster is a spacer of stabilized Maple burl. The handle center is luxurious Ebony and the pommel is stabilized Bog Oak that is between 2000 and 5000 years old and also features a decorative mosaic pin at the back. The handle pin has been peined, domed and polished to a satin finish with detailed filework on the spine.

The sheath is also 100% handmade with saddle stitching and Celtic knot toolwork to match the color and feel of the knife.

SPECIFICATIONS
  • Blade: Böhler M390 Stainless Steel (HRC +/- 61)
  • Blade thickness: 3.6mm (0.14")
  • Blade length: 99mm (3.9")
  • Overall length: 202mm (8")
  • Handle material: Solid brass bolster, stabilized Maple burl, vulcanized fibre and brass liners, Ebony handle center and a stabilized Bog Oak pommel.
  • Fittings: Brass with mosaic pin in the pommel
  • Traditional hidden tang design with filework on the spine. Comes with a custom fitted sheath as seen.

That's a stellar piece of craftsmanship. Wonder what today's exchange rate in USD is?
