I finally received my Sgian Dubh from the carver last night. You might recall the Sgian Dubh I had made for my brother-in-law, well here is mine. I had a heck of a time taking a picture with out washing out the ivory on the handle. On the obverse side is a carving of a polar bear (although I think it is upside down, or at least that's how it will appear when worn).
As before the handle is carved from Narwhal Ivory and the pommel is 6000 year old bog oak from Speyside Scotland. It didn't quite look finished to me as the blade wasn't seated all that well in the handle so I added the piece of bog oak between the blade and the handle. The RCMP cap badge in the picture is going to eventually be my kilt pin. The tartan? MacKenzie Modern, the tartan my Grandpa wore when fighting overseas.
