The Armistice

Sniper plate sgian dubh

Specially with the Armistice in mind we have created a sgian dubh with a blade made from a sniper plate from the trenches of WW1 and a handle from the walnut of a Lee Enfield rifle butt. You can see the carefully preserved pitting of the original sniper plate down the blade edge. These sgian dhu’s are hand made in Sheffield even to the exent that the blades had to be hand cut and ground out of the sniper plate as lasers simply bounced of the surface of the metal. This is truly beatiful memorable piece of which even each handle is different due to the curves of the rifle butt. It’s always a bit of a job thinking up originality in knife making and this item is a product of that that process and finding the people to make it.
