Sgian Dubh 'Scavaig' - Copper, Flamed Oak and Katalox
My take on a traditional Scottish Sgian Dubh - the 'Scavaig'. This one has been crafted with a solid copper bolster (not just a furrule), a flame-licked and stabilized Oak handle centre that has been reclaimed from an old wine barrel and a pommel in Katalox. Stabilizing is a process where the wood is impregnated with resin making it stronger, weather resistant and less prone to cracking or warping. 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 embossing.
