This Sgian Dubh was a special commission by Iain as a gift to his son on his wedding day.
The handle and sheath are carved from 5300 year old bog oak with 9ct gold fittings. The blade is made from Stainless Damascus Steel and the pommel stone is cut from Caithness Greenstone.
“I have just collected the Sgian Dubh from the post office and it is fabulous. I looked at lots of different firms for this, but your products are at a different level of quality and craftsmanship, and the designs are a bit different and so good. All in all well worth waiting for and I can appreciate why you are busy. Iain”

We crafted this bespoke pair of wedding rings specially for Justine and Stephen, working with them to develop their design from Justine’s own hand drawn Celtic knot artwork. The rings are made from a solid bar of Aerospace grade Titanium and each ring was given it’s own look, with Stephen’s ring having a matte finish and Justine’s ring being more highly polished.
The couple kindly emailed us and sent the above photo after their wedding;
“Thank you so much Rab and Tanya for bringing our dream wedding rings to life! You took our design and made works of art from it that we will treasure forever!
We have loved the whole process, especially getting to meet you and discuss our rings and see examples of your work.
Getting our rings made by you is a decision we will never regret, we’re so glad we went for it as they are going to bring us joy every day for the rest of our lives.
We’ve both been getting so many compliments about our rings and love showing them off!”

We created these wedding rings for Rose and Dan, working from their own sketches and ideas. Dan’s ring was crafted in titanium while Rose’s uses Palladium and a blue Sapphire. Although the designs are unique to each ring, they are bound together by a river joining the design elements.
We crafted this special pair of wedding rings for Alan and Malene.
The design is the distinctive Scandinavian Borre style ring-braid engraved into aerospace grade titanium. Malene’s ring was finished with a high polish whilst Alan’s ring was given a contrasting matte/iron finish.
“May I just add to that how thrilled I am, with the rings. Exactly what we wanted, and 1st rate service.”
Alex commissioned us to design and create a special pendant for his wife, Morna’s birthday.
We engraved six Pictish Boars into Titanium and heated it until the metal took on a blue/purple hue to complement the Tayside Amethyst stone set into the centre, while the back of the pendant was diamond-engraved with a personal message.
“…absolutely stunning! Couldn’t have asked for any better or more. Really beautiful, she’ll love it… Love the way it shimmers differently in different light…, Alex”
We created this custom Sgian Dubh for Mark who’s a piper located in the US. The handle is carved from 5300 year old Bog Oak with Sterling Silver fittings and holds a Tayside Amethyst pommel stone at the top. The front of the handle features a ‘Greenman’ which Mark sent to us to inlay into the handle. The Damascus blade is made from high carbon stainless steel.
Mark kindly emailed the following regarding his Sgian Dubh;
“This is the sort of craftmanship I was looking for. It’s beautiful and functional, and it sort of makes me want to have kids just so I can pass it along to someone.”
We created this pair of bespoke rings for Karen and Richard featuring a design derived from the Harriss Spiral, a mathematical fractal curve based upon the golden ratio.
These rings were cut from a solid bar of ‘Titanium Damascus’ consisting of two different Titanium alloys carefully forge-welded together producing an organic, almost woodgrain like pattern intrinsic to the metal into which we cut the spiral design.
“Many thanks for all your help and encouragement with our 25th Anniversary rings. We are both delighted with the finished rings themselves but also really enjoyed the evolution process of design and choice of materials – we feel that we were very much involved in their creation, which makes them all the more special. Karen & Richard ”
