The barman in my local is a very good friend of mine (shocker, I know), and this year his girlfriend, who I'm also very close with, commissioned a sgian dubh for his Christmas. I said I'd charge her the cost of a basic knife, and do the fancy work for free, as payment for all the times I've sent him staggering back to her at 4am when he was meant to close the bar at 1... This is what I came up with - 1095, copper and ebony:

+1 on the good looks of the copper and black, the carving and the inlaid runes.

I like this one -  I'm not usually a fan of sgian dubh, but this one has the lines of a useful blade rather than an ornament.
