Introducing the Kilberry Collection, made exclusively for GNK by the craftsmen at Kilberry Bagpipes.
These sgian dubhs are hand turned by artisan bagpipe makers on the same machines they use to create their world-class instruments. The handles are made from dense African Blackwood, left over from practice chanters, small pipes, pipe chanters and bagpipes.
The designs range from the simple to the fully beaded - putting a traditional aesthetic in a new context. They are named for the classic piobaireachd tunes that, in another incarnation, they might have played: ‘Little Spree’, ‘Comely Tune’, ‘Glen Is Mine’, ‘Cave of Gold’ and ‘The Groat’.
Kilberry Collection blades are made from legendary Damascus steel, which has been folded and re-folded to create a teardrop pattern. Blades are sold unsharpened and sheathed in a leather scabbard.
A unique accessory for passionate pipers, highlandwear aficionados and collectors alike.
