Here are the knives. Some are sold, and some are currently available, as described in the captions. I can duplicate a sold knife, or work with you to create a custom piece. Lead time for custom orders is currently 6 to 8 weeks. This particular Sgian Dubh was made as a tribute to my Scottish Grandmother, Alice Victoria Melville, and the handle colors were made to match my Melville tartan.

All my knives come with a Lifetime Guarantee. Call or email to arrange a commission or purchase.
