    Custom Sgian Dubh

    I am beyond stoked. A fraternity brother of mine is a knife maker. He’s making me a custom sgian dubh. African black wood scales and red buffalo horn spacers and pommel. Pegged with white tail deer antler tips.

    You bet. I have a few pics of the scales and spacers being assembled but it looks like multi colored blocks in a vice. Not much to see right now.

    Photos of a knife being made (progressive assembly) would be helpful to those of us that may consider our own construction. Can you get your friend to supply any photos during the construction? Thanks in advance if able.

    What I wanted

    I want a functional tool. Minimalist design. The handle is flat on the side against my leg but rounded on the palm side. I’ve asked for a satin finish.

    That is a smart looking piece, I'm sure it will be enjoyed for years to come and is a wonderful addition to your wardrobe.

    Nice to know handy folks , eh! A custom piece such as this is so much better than the majority of what is available. I really liked the colours at the pommel top, an excellent choice.
