Sgian Dubh - Copper, Katalox & Camelthorn
My take on a traditional Scottish Sgian Dubh. This one has been crafted with O1 carbon steel blade with a blued patina to give it an antique look. It has a copper bolster that is solid (not a furrule), an oiled Katalox handle centre and a pommel of Camelthorn - a beautiful wood with a natural red tint that harvested from thorn trees in South Africa. 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 embossing.
Blade: O1 Carbon Steel (HRC +/- 60)
Blade thickness: 3mm (0.12")
Blade length: 85mm (2.15")
Overall length: 185mm (7.3")
Handle material: Copper bolster, Katalox, vulcanised fibre liners and a Camelthorn pommel
Traditional hidden tang design. Comes with a custom fitted sheath as seen.
