    Hello from Livingston

    Hello everyone!

    Stumbled across this forum yesterday wen looking at Tartan Micarta. Thought i would join and share my progress as i lean and develop my Sgian Dubhs. I do sell them but i do more R&D than anything else at the moment.

    This is something i am working on at the moment, pewter inlays.Click image for larger version.

    Well met Chris. Many of us make our own accessories and enjoy seeing other projects (techniques, materials used, etc.). I hope you have looked over old posts and seen the variety of sgian, sporrans and buckles our members produce. Glad to have you with us and hope to see photos of your items.

    I am indeed wading my way through the info on here. I do fancy making some sporrans etc to go with my sgian dubhs but i will take it slow. I do enjoy a challenge!

    in stores

    Unfortunatly that was not me, I hope to have items in local shops this year if they will have them. I have had offers from Edinburgh based shops last year but i wasn’t ready for that level of production.

    I will post some more images in the appropriate section. Have a couple of commissions for next month so will post up some images as I go.
