Sgian Dubh 'Coruisk' - Damascus and Ivory (Elforyn)
A new variant on a traditional Scottish Sgian Dubh - the 'Coruisk'. Co-designed with one of my good customers, Cornel Bebie. The '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.
This blade is crafted in beautiful Zladinox damascus (carbon steel) with 150 layers in a 'pyramid' pattern. It also has detailed filework on the spine.
The brass bolster is solid and not just a ferrule (metal band around the wood). Behind the bolster is a spacer of Elforyn - a grained, synthetic ivory. The handle center is African Blackwood and the pommel is beautifully figured Arizona Desert Ironwood and also features a decorative mosaic pin at the back. The handle pin has been peined, domed and polished to a satin finish.
The sheath is also 100% handmade with saddle stitching and Celtic knot toolwork to match the color and feel of the knife.
