Lessons sold out until 2023 – please email bookings@glitteringedge to be added to the waiting list.
Glittering Edge is a small Scottish company specialising in swords and knives as well as custom bladesmithing & knifemaking lessons. These are traditionally forged, or ground out using more modern techniques. Often a combination of both.
I specialise in swords, dirks and sgian dubhs, but have years of experience when it comes to creating blades for other uses such as (but not limited to) chef knives, bowie knives and axes. Every single blade I sell is hand made by me in my Edinburgh workshop, whether to historical, fantasy or your own specifications. The blades are designed with your input and made to last.
I can source a variety of steels fit for your needs and will happily help you design your own custom piece. I also make my own damascus (pattern welded) steel in-house.
One of my favourite aspects about what I do is creating something custom for a special event – particularly weddings and civil partnerships. To be included in a couples special day, even in a small way such as creating a sword as a gift or for the cake cutting brings me great pride and I feel it adds a further community element into what I do.

Bladesmithing lessons are also available. In these lessons, I guide you through the process start to finish of how to forge your very own knife.
