All our silver is Sterling quality, hallmarked in Edinburgh by the Assay Office of Scotland.
Each sgian dubh has four silver bands. These are created individually by hand from sheet silver. The knotwork patterns are cut with a hand file and then joined to a plain silver backplate, which is blackened to make the knotwork designs stand out.
The rings are then shaped on a tiny anvil before being finally fitted to the sgian dubh.
