Moffat Sgian Dubh Knife @2012 Michael H. Mara

This Sgian Dubh has a 3 1/2 dagger point, flat ground, 440C blade, hardened to HRC 58, with traditional spine grooves and fuller. The handle is Bog Oak that I imported from Loch Ness, Scotland. It's European White Oak that fell into the peat bog and sat there, soaking, for several thousand years. The Bog Oak is inlaid with a checkered Onyx and vulcanized spacer band, to match the Moffat tartan, Nickel silver inlaid with aged Ivory, with an aged Ivory pommel and Garnet set in the end, 7-5/8" OAL.  Includes hand tooled leather sheath. $473.
