Antler Sgian Dubh with Fife Red Jasper Pommel Stud and Damascus Blade

I made this Sgian Dubh for Bruce McClure who’s going to a wedding this weekend. The handle is from local stag horn and oak, and has a small piece Fife Red Jasper set into a silver stud to finish it off. This is the first time I’ve used this fitting style to combine stone and antler.
