Full tang sgian dubhs

Hello all,

Been away a while. Been working on sgian dubhs and had issues with the stick tang when I thought "Where is it written that they have to be hidden tang?" So I started working on full tang sgians.

Here are the results so far.

The classic black (African blackwood)

With kuri -

And since I have that big area peeking out of the top of the hose I started doing filework (I did it on the above to but I forgot to take a pic)-

And the lastest on with brown dyed black ash burl -

What do you guys think? I have one planned with walrus tusk ivory soon for a customer.


I cook with a flair for the dramatic,
and depraved indifference to calories
