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.

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).
