Glittering Edge is a small Scottish company run by Greg Marr. Specialising in swords and knives as well as custom Bladesmithing courses.
My blades are traditionally forged, or ground out using more modern techniques. Often a combination of both depending on design, materials and client budget but always with the desired end use and comfort in mind. I also create damascus, as well as the more specialised “Dramascus” (whisky barrel damascus).
As Edinburghs Swordmaker, I have been commissioned to create a vast array of different swords, knives and other blades for a variety of uses and events. One of my favourites was a custom dagger for a clients wedding, with the location coordinates of where they tied the knot etched on to the blade.
At the turn of 2022, I helped some of the Clan Jewels (sword, dirk & sgian dubh) for the 20th Chief of Clan Buchanan for the inauguration on the 8th October 2022. Most notably the Lion Inagural Sword in collaboration with Silversmith Roddy Young – more information can be found here on the Clan Buchanan website
I can create anything from historical pieces to purely fantasy, although some limitations will apply.
