Beautiful meticulously crafted Heathergem sgian dubh is a truly unique item.
Heathergems are handcrafted from the stems of scottish heather, renowned for its purple bloom. The heather is collected from the Perthshire hills. The stems are then dried, shotblasted to remove the bark and dyed various colours. Stems of different colours are mixed and compressed into a block. Approx eighty tons of pressure is required to press the stems together. The Heather block is then cut into slices and individual pieces are cut, shaped, filled and sanded by skilled craftworkers before being lacquered to give the final finish. This unique process means no two heathergem sgian dubhs are the same and lets you take home your very own piece of Scotland.
