My friend and contemporary Rab Gordon used some of my steel in a bespoke sgian dubh in the Summer of 2022, see this amazing creation HERE
One of my highly unique products is forging Whisky Barrel Damascus.
To create this, I combine the steel hoops from whisky barrels together with high quality tool steels. Utilising the immense heat from the forge, I fire-weld the steel together and fold it under heat several times. As a result, a clear and distinct pattern becomes visible within the steel.
As of 2020, This is a new and unique Scottish product which marries together the classic Sgian Dubh kilt knife with traditional Scottish whisky.
