Sgian Dubh 'Scavaig' - Brass, Bocote and Bog Oak
My take on a traditional Scottish Sgian Dubh - the 'Scavaig'. This one has been crafted with a brass bolster that is solid (not a furrule), an oiled Bocote handle centre and a pommel in Bog Oak that is between 2000 and 5000 years old. The handle pin has been peined, domed and polished to a satin finish, with a mosaic pin in the pommel and detailed filework on the spine. The sheath is also 100% handmade with saddle stitching and toolwork.
