Each of the historic Sheffield made sgian dubhs on this page comes with a drawstring bag as above and a letter on handmade paper describing the Sgian Dubh and another letter describing the drawstring bag. They are post paid in the UK.


The red cloth comes from Hainsworths mill in Yorkshire which was founded in 1783 and is still used in the uniform of the Guards and other British Army Regiments.


meaningful leather green 300

We try to find meaningful material for our products and the material itself adds a new dimension to some fairly mundane items. Alongside our metal and wood we are adding leather. Leather from significant sources such as card cases using the leather from Soviet cold war era flying jackets and leather from WW2 era American flying jackets. Carrying these items connects you in however tenuous a way with real epic events in the history of the 20th century. Click on the image above to see the pages where this new range will appear.

scottish driftwood 2 copy

Our Scottish driftwood sgian dubhs pictured above are all different and of equal quality. The grips are hard and have been polished. The price is 135. To buy one of our items click on the buy button. If you are none UK based the extra charge for postage will be around 8 and we will send you a paypal invoice subsequent to your postage of the Sgian Dubh. You might describe the wood as sub-fossilized and it seems older than our bog oak knives which are around ten thousand years old. We only have six of them and that’s it - the wood was a chance find and except for a few pocket knives which we will eventually make that’s the end of it.
