Pride Of Scotland Sgian Dubh
Radharc - Friday, May 26, 2006 - 9:34pmKnife-makers
I thought I'd start this off with a pic of the latest creation, the Pride of Scotland Sgian Dubh. This knife has a 4 7/8â€ dagger point, convex ground, random pattern Damascus blade with traditional spine grooves/partially serrated spine, and a deep, full blade fuller. The Damascus is hand forged from cable, 15N20, 1095, and nickel, and hardened to HRC 60. The Sgian Dubh is 9 1/4â€ overall. The handle is Afzelia burl with Lapis Lazuli and Sugilite inlaid into a checkerboard pattern, Sterling silver fittings, Ivory inlay, and a carved Ivory pommel.
