Falcon Sgian Dubh

Recommended Posts

Finally finished this one. 3 1/2" forged suminigashi blade with knotwork and runic engraving, boxwood handle carved as a viking style falcon with buffalo horn eyes, copper mounts with engraved silver overlays. Copper scabbard covered in deerskin, with a copper and silver clan crest and mounts, and a buffalo horn scabbard throat:

Masterful work Jake!

The carving always top notch. 
The copper/silver combo really is artistically above and beyond.

Thank you for showing. Inspirational for everyone to dream on.

Seriously upping the game Jake. I saw the blade and handle on FB, but that ferrule and sheath! Whoa baby!

“So I'm lightin' out for the territory, ahead of the scared and the weak and the mean spirited, because Aunt Sally is fixin’ to adopt me and civilize me, and I can't stand it. I've been there before.”

The only bad experience is the one from which you learn nothing.

Jake ,I really like the box wood contrast to the sheath..... I would prefer to see the copper with a natural patina that it will acquire with age....  It  looks like a very complete  piece.....Nice!!!!!!   Thanks
