Sgian Dubhs made with grips from a ancient piece of Scottish driftwood

Made in Sheffield out of this piece of driftwood comes a short run of sgian dubhs. The wood comes from the sea off the Western Isles; from the looks of it has been subject to the buffeting of the stormy seas for many centuries and the wood is at least semi fossilised. The grain of what may be oak has melded into a solid mass with the natural colours of the oak merging and coalescing into a harmonious whole. It’s highly polished and very hard and like nothing you will have seen before on a knife handle. We only have six of these sgian dubhs and it is most unlikely that we will ever find a piece of driftwood like this again. The driftwood has been air dried for two years

This sgian dubh comes in a drawstring bag which in itself is an epic piece of Scottish and British heritage. From the red uniforms worn by the British Infantry at the Battle of Waterloo, to the thin red line at Balaclava to the jackets of the Red Coats in North America and even today in the dress uniform of the Guards the same wool cloth used in the uniforms of the soldiers in these epic events is still being made by the same mill in Yorkshire.  That red cloth made by the mill which was founded in 1783 is used for our red drawstring bags. It’s a sumptuous scarlet coloured thick wool cloth with a vibrancy of colour. Each of these sgian dubhs comes with a letter on hand made paper describing this historic cloth and another letter describing the sgian dubh itself. It comes boxed and in the standard Sgian Dubh sheath.
