Stag Horn Sgian Achlias

Recommended Posts

I just finished this blade up and wanted to show it off. It is forged 1095 tool steel that I left the forge marks on for that period look. The guard is bronze and copper that fits over the horn. Used a clip that I manufactured that aloows the knife to be worn behind a belt or sash or in the pit :rolleyes:

It has a 6" cutting edge and is 7" with riccasso. Long enough to get arrested in Texas :lol:

Thanks fellas, I really like how it came out. The horn I found at a brush fire so it had that color to it when it buffed out. I think that gave it a lot of character. Sorry Eugene it already has a home :cry: Thanks again.

Wow, can it be used instead of Sgian dubh?

I know it won't be comfortable, but just theoretically?

If I remember it was about 11 inches long overall so as a Sgian it would be a bit too long. I like keeping sgians to about 7" and they are much lighter and thinner plus this one had the crown of the horn facing the wrong way :D
