Highland Oak Sgian Dubh with Family Shield Inlay

Bingham Sgian Dubh

We recently finished this custom Sgian Dubh as a wedding gift from the best man to the groom. It features the groom’s family shield made from Sterling Silver and inlaid into a handle which we carved from a storm felled oak tree on our farm in Glen Urquhart. The Angus Bloodstone pommel stone was made by our friend Nat Forno of Scottish Gemstones which he set into a Sterling Silver ferrule band. A matching Sterling Silver lower ferrule band has been engraved with the family name BINGHAM. The Sgian Dubh has been finished with a striking Damascus steel blade.
Graham very kindly emailed us soon after he received the Sgian Dubh:
“the Sgian Dubh arrived at the weekend. It’s absolutely amazing! Thank you so much for all you’ve done.”
