Sgian Dubh 'Coruisk'

Sgian Dubh 'Coruisk'

The heirloom quality  Sgian Dubh 'Coruisk' features a long, slim, highly finished blade with a flared, solid bolster, an accent spacer and pommel. The 'Coruisk' has an elegant and dressy feel compared to the more rustic 'Scavaig' design.


The blade is crafted in a premium stainless (normally Bohler M390) or a damascus steel. BALETA Handmade Sgian Dubhs not only look great, but they also have fantastic performance and can be used in the field as a highly capable EDC or hunting knife. The blade also features detailed filework on the spine.


The bolster is solid metal, and not just a ferrule (metal band around the wood) - Nickel Silver, Brass, Bronze or Copper is used. Behind the bolster is a spacer - this is normally in a beautifully figured wood in a color to compliment the kilt or animal material like mammoth bone or ivory. Keeping with the tradition of a Sgian Dubh, the handle center is normally a dark wood. The pommel is chosen to compliment the spacer and handle centre and features a mosaic pin. The handle pin is peened, domed and then polished to a satin finish.


The sheath is 100% handmade in-house with saddle stitching and Celtic knot toolwork to match the color and feel of the knife.


Starting at 470 Euro, the Coruisk is a special Sgian Dubh to compliment a kilt outfit and can be proudly passed down to future generations. Please get in touch to discuss your custom Coruisk build.
