Sgian Dubh 'Coruisk' - Brass, Maple Burl, Bog Oak and Ebony
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 blade with a high satin sheen finish, 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 brass bolster is solid and not just a ferrule (metal band around the wood). Behind the bolster is a spacer of stabilized Maple burl. The handle center is stabilized Bog Oak that is between 2000 and 5000 years old. The pommel is luxurious Ebony and also features a decorative mosaic pin at the back. 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 toolwork to match the color and feel of the knife.
