Sgian Dubh 'Scavaig' - Brass, Cocobolo & African Blackwood
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 Cocobolo handle centre and a pommel of African Blackwood. The handle pin has been peined, domed and polished to a satin finish with detailed filework on the spine. It has a mosiac pin in the pommel. The sheath is also 100% handmade with saddle stitching and embossing.
