Sgian Dubh in Rosewood, Brass and Damascus with diamond point engraving

SG910 - Sgian Dubh in Rosewood, Brass and Damascus with diamond engraving
Just posting this photo of a Sgian Dubh I finished last week as I don’t have many examples of blade engravings. I used a diamond point to engrave a phrase in Irish Gaelic requested by our customer.
Update: Just received a very nice email confirming the safe arrival of this Sgian Dubh in New Orleans:
“The package just arrived and what a beautiful gift this will be. I didn’t know what to expect as I have never seen anything like this. I am so excited to give it to my beloved.
