Sgian Dubh and Pendant with Culloden Bog Oak and Caithness Greenstone

Sgian Dubh and Pendant with Culloden Bog Oak and Caithness Greenstone
We had the pleasure of crafting a custom Sgian Dubh and pendant for Kilian after he and Franzi visited us to discuss a commission. The handle was carved with with our Celtic Knotwork and Thistle design in Culloden Bog Oak, which has been carbon dated to approx 4200 years old. As someone with an eye for steel and blade quality, he chose a unique blade that had been hand-made by our friend and talented blade-smith, Chris Grant from a piece of ‘Becut’, Stainless Steel with added Niobium.
Kilian also asked us to create a complementary pendant as an anniversary gift for his wife Franzi. The pendant was made in Sterling Silver and set with Culloden Bog Oak carved with Celtic Knotwork. It had a centre stone of Caithness Greenstone which was cut from the same piece of stone as the Sgian Dubh’s pommel stone by our friend skilled stone cutter, Renato Forno at Scottish Gemstones.
Kilian kindly emailed us:
“Well what can I say, I love both pieces. The Sgian Dubh is excellent with its Culloden bog oak handle, which feels absolutely great holding it, and the blade is extremely sharp, which makes the Sgian Dubh a really useful piece of art and craftsmanship. The matching pendant also with Culloden bog oak and the same piece of Caithness Greenstone like in the pommel of the Sgian Dubh is beautiful too…
On Sunday I was finally able to give Franzi the pendant on the occasion of our wedding anniversary. The surprise was perfect! She is absolutely happy with it and said it is as gorgeous as in her memories.” Continue reading

“…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” Continue reading
