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.
As Edinburghs Swordmaker, I have been commissioned to create a vast array of different swords, knives and other bladed articles. 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 created the blades (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
I can create anything from historical pieces to purely fantasy (although some physical limitations may apply).
