Why are these on clearance? We create our Rustic Wood Handled Sgian Dubhs in-house with love. One of our raw materials is an otherwise unremarkable boot knife. It’s a good starting point, but isn’t going to win any awards. Right away we reject about half of them for various reasons, such as:
- The wood is pale and unappealing
- The blade isn’t quite up to quality
- The blade is mounted crooked
- The brass fittings are not quite right
- Etc., etc., etc.
This product right here is those rejects. Each of these rejected knives is kinda crappy in it’s own special way. Each one also comes with a super-crappy sheath that we recommend you throw away immediately.
Why buy one of these even after reading that glowing description? Because it’s still a kinda-cool boot knife or sgian dubh, with lots of potential. And its cheap. And it’s on sale. And it’s cheap. Try your hand at making it your own — repair the sheath or make your own; sharpen the blade; stain and finish the handle, or maybe experiment with wood-burning a nice Celtic knot pattern. The possibilities are endless!
