    I sent Stephan $ last week to buy a dagger he had left over from Blade. He remembered that I really wanted a Sgian dubh Scottish dagger to go with my Kilt. He knew I was settling for the small double edged dagger cuz the Celt blade was a year or so overdue so he started the Kilt sockable blade and here is the forging pictures. It will have Blackwood handle and the traditional file work on the back of the single edged 6" tooth pick are gonna actually be cutting serations. I told him to not hide my pins on this one and use mosiac ones and want a simple black slip sheath to tuck in my right hosiery :)

    Traditional ones usually have some file work on the spine, mine will have useful serrations there. Thehandle will be Blackwood of course and thinner on the side of knife that is against my skin when placed in my right outside leg sock. That should fill the palm of my right hand when drawn and orient the blade without looking.;)
