When Anne and Nick came to visit us to discuss their wedding rings we established that the Moose, Rose and Maple Leaf were elements that are particularly significant to them. We developed upon their initial ideas and set them within a Tree of Life border. We then engraved their unique design into Gold, maximizing the amount of detail possible for the ring width. They kindly emailed us when their rings arrived;
“Hi Rab and Tanya,
The rings arrived today and are everything we dreamed of and more still. They are fantastically detailed and so completely how we imagined. We cannot wait to put them on this weekend and wear them for the rest of our lives! They are so special and we are so glad to have found yourselves and come to see you back in July. The extra work you put in is appreciated so much and they are fantastic 🙂 the detail and craftsmanship are outstanding!
Thank You so much, Anne and Nick”

We created this unique Sgian Dubh for Robbie who requested a special design. The Bog Oak handle features a silver Lion Rampant inlay along with a pair of solid gold stars. A Tayside Amethyst pommel stone is mounted in silver on the top of the handle and the Sgian Dubh has a Damascus Steel blade.
“Now that I have my Sgian Dubh in my hands it is so so cool. I commissioned my Sgian Dubh in remembrance to special family members denoted by the gold stars. This piece will be used on special occasions. It will be on display in my home to look at and remember good times. I appreciate the craftsmanship by Rab as it was made exactly to what I wanted. Thanks to Tanya and Rab for working with me to produce this stunning piece. I love it.”
We created this special pair of Platinum wedding rings for Rachael and Craig. Their rings are unique and feature Snowdrops and Thistles which they requested we design for their rings.
“Hello we just wanted to thank you so much for the rings everyone mentioned how lovely they were. Thank you so much for capturing the sentiment yet keeping so much beauty. We have recommended you to other friends and cannot express how pleased we are with the final item. Thank you so much for working hard to get the right design and ensuring we were 100% happy with the final item.
Best wishes for the future, Rachael and Craig”
This Sgian Dubh was commissioned by Natasha in Canada for a very special Christmas present. She kindly emailed us when it arrived;
“Today was the most exciting day I have had the pleasure of in quite some time. A box marked fragile arrived with an international shipping sticker. I could hardly contain myself enough to gently cut open the box and very carefully unwrap such a treasure.
I have to say it took my breath away. The craftsmanship and care you have put into this has placed me in awe. And I couldn’t be happier.
It’s even more beautiful than I imagined. Your pictures, although remarkable, have no ridges or fragrance. As I sit here Sgian Dubh in hand, the ebony handle has such detail. I remembered of the pommel stone choice and the story by which it came about. As I unsheathed the obsidian blade, the sheath itself is amazing and perfectly fit. And the blade, I could only imagine such beauty it’s gorgeous and delicate and perfect!!
Thank you so much. I am great full to have found you. And I cannot wait to gift this to the man that deserves such a precious gift.”
We’d like to thank our friends and the fellow craftsmen for their help and assistance, especially Euan for finding and selecting some pebbles from Kerrycroy Bay on the Isle of Bute where the recipients parents have an ancestral clan connection. We photographed these and Natasha chose her favorite pebble which was then cut and polished for the pommel stone by Nat. The Obsidian blade was knapped for us by Tony and the sheath was crafted to fit the blade by Terry Osborne.
I made this custom Sgian Dubh for Sharon to give to Craig for their wedding.
The handle is carved from 4200 year old Culloden Bog Oak with Sterling Silver fittings and a Sutherland Greenstone Pommel. The blade is unusual as it was hand-crafted from Japanese 67 layer steel by my friend and bladesmith Chris Grant. I embossed the sturdy leather sheath with Craig’s clan motto.
“Many thanks for the Sgian Dubh it arrived yesterday and I am most impressed and am sure Craig will be too it is truly magnificent. Regards, Sharon”

We were asked by Helen and Andrew to create a pair of unique Titanium rings that would capture the essence of a flower that Andrew made specially for Helen some years ago and also include Celtic Knotwork. It was a lovely commission to be part of and we created a stylised representation of Andrew’s flower which worked beautifully with the Knotwork design encircling the ring. The finish on the rings was heat-blued that we then polished off slightly more on Helen’s ring than on Andrew’s to suit their own personal tastes.

We were asked if we would create a special pair of bespoke wedding rings featuring a unique combination of elements for Adam and Cynthia. Working with the couple to develop their design ideas we made Cynthia’s ring in Platinum and Adam’s in Titanium along with a custom bog oak Sgian Dubh for Adam. These are best described in their own words:
“The rings feature a Rocky Mountain Columbine for the birthplace of the bride, the Yorkshire Rose for the birthplace of the groom and a Celtic knot representing Scotland, where we met and fell in love. The Sgian Dubh is for the groom, and is a beautiful blend of Scotland and Yorkshire – including a piece of Whitby Jet (from W.Hammond in North Yorkshire).”

We carved the Sgian Dubh handle and sheath from 4200 year old Culloden Bog Oak which is fitted with Sterling Silver ferrules and a Whitby Jet pommel stone. The lower ferrule band is engraved with the Yorkshire Rose and the blade was crafted for us by Scottish bladesmith Chris Grant from High Carbon Stainless Damascus.
Cynthia and Adam kindly emailed us after their wedding;
“We are thrilled with the Sgian Dubh and rings that Rab has made us for our wedding. They are exquisite in their detail and are so personal for us! We can’t thank you enough!”
