Persian Sgian Dubh


Recommended Posts

here's one I started about 2 1/2 years ago, and just finished up for a friend to give to her partner for Christmas. 1095 blade, copper collar, steel guard, and ebony handle:

and here's her sister, which I finished a couple of years back:

I love it for all the usual reasons: the subtle curves, beautiful finishes, excellent carving... The blending of three cultural influences (and making it work) is impressive.

Jake - that is a fine job! I like the blade collar touch.

Work like this inspires me to look into making chisels so I can start doing carving like this, If I can get even half as good at carving as you pulled off here, I will consider that a victory of sorts.

Excellent work...
