The handle on this Scottish sgian dubh is walnut from Lee Enfield rifle butts. Each of these Sheffield made sgian dubh’s is different due to the curves in the wood of the butt. Each one is therefore unique and it has taken skill and patience to extract the wood. It’s Sheffield made in stainless steel. It’s a beautiful wood and polished to perfection. The Lee Enfield traces it’s roots back to 1888 when the British army adopted a rifle created by James P. Lee. For over three hundred years up to the middle of WW2 walnut was the favoured wood for rifle butts. These particular Rifle butts from which the handles of our Scottish sgian dubhs were derived were produced for wartime contracts and manufactured by H. Morris & Co of Glasgow. They were unissued and stored every since. The Lee Enfield was with British soldiers in battles from the Somme to the storming of the Normandy beaches. Again as with all our wood it’s difficult to find and in limited supply. The British army early in WW2 abandoned walnut and moved to easier to obtain woods. The Scottish sgian dubh comes in a red drawstring bag and in a black gift box. It’s accompanied by a letter on hand made paper telling you about the wood and the making of the knife. It also comes with the letter about the historic cloth. You are buying a heirloom with it’s direct association with British and especially Scottish military history. Stock number Sgian 2 The knife including the red drawstring bag, sheath and boxed inclusive of UK postage retails at £68, grab yourself a bargain at £45 delivered to your door.
