I wanna be you when I grow up.

Seriously though, you work is always cool. What are the dimensions?

Oh. I forgot to tell you that I am stealing that carving motif. ;)

Thanks Joshua. Blades on these are 3 1/4", with 3 5/8" of handle. You're about a thousand years too late to steal that design from anyone, which I'd say makes it public domain...

Useless information alert - the design of the celtic knot dates back to the 6th century, and originated in Northern  Italy/ southern Gaul (France), before appearing in Ireland and Scotland in the 7th century, 

 

so its definitely public property. 

The Sgian Dubh looks fantastic, id proudly wear it with my kilt.
