Sgian Dubh 'Coruisk' - Damascus, Poplar Burl & Bog Oak
A new variant on a traditional Scottish Sgian Dubh - the 'Coruisk'. 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 'step' 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 stabilized Poplar burl. The handle center is stabilized Bog Oak that is between 2000 and 5000 years old. Stabilizing is a process whereby wood is impregnated with a resin that is then cured. The stabilized wood is harder, stronger, more weather resistant and far less likely to warp or crack than natural wood. The pommel is Ebony 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.
