"The sgian dubh is in front of me now, and I don't have the words
to tell you how far it exceeds my expectations. You've done wonderful work! I was hoping for something special, and you rewarded me with that and more. It's a delight to find genuine craftsmanship and artistry. I'll be proud to wear and use my black knife, and I'll happily refer anyone who asks to Rainnea.
Thank you once again, Rab. I'm delighted!"

I will definitely be ordering another sgian dubh soon. Great Work!" Chris Vaught, Virginia, USA. SG292

SG873 - Ancient Culloden Bog Oak, Sterling Silver & Damascus

As I come from a Scottish family and having a great interest in the history of Scotland when I ordered a Sgian Dubh I wanted something which was close to an original one.

The Sgian Dubh which I received from you on Saturday made from Culloden Bog Oak with a Damascus Steel blade exceeded my expectations.

It is a work of craftmanship, it is unique and is an item to treasure for ever. I can only say I am highly delighted with the end result. Thank you.

SG700 - Sterling Silver Belt Buckle & Highland Oak Sgian Dubh

"The belt buckle designed specifically for Leo's engagement present was a challenging ask, as we wished to have interlocking celtic lions in the centre of the buckle with a celtic pattern around the outside - although you would not have thought it was challenging from the impressive way Rab approached the request. The design was created by Rab and cannot be described as anything less than exquisite and superb! The end result was even better than we had imagined and it certainly helped to make Leo look even more gallant at our wedding reception. Rab also created a customised Sgian Dubh for us, to be given instead of a ring to Leo, during the vows of our wedding ceremony. The craftsmanship is just wonderful and we could not have been happier with both pieces! Thank you for your time and patience with us and for also working so hard to ensure they were ready and received for the days we wanted."
Marsaili & Leo Heatley, Oxfordshire, England.

"The Sgian Dubh arrived today. To say I'm pleased would be an understatement. It looks just like the pictures you sent, except that the pictures don't really do it justice.
The knife is a work of art, from the contours of the handle down to the beautiful knotwork carving. The weight and balance are just right. The wooden sheath is also beautiful, as is the silver boar. I'll be able to wear it for the first time this weekend, when I pipe for
the Brussels Caledonian Society's St. Andrews dinner."

"We were looking for a Sgian Dubh for the son of close friends to complete the Highland dress he was being given by relatives and friends to celebrate his 21st birthday. We wanted something a bit different, and after browsing several other websites, we found Rainnea. We were immediately impressed by what we saw, especially the Culloden bog oak handles. After a phone call to discuss what we wanted, Rab Gordon agreed to design a Sgian Dubh with a bog oak handle and Scottish silver blade engraved with a traditional Celtic patterns. He emailed us digital photos of possible designs and called us to discuss the fine detail. Once we had agreed the final design, the Sgian Dubh was produced, hall-marked in Edinburgh, and despatched extremely promptly. The lad was delighted with his gift, and several male generations of his family were highly covetous!! It was a pleasure dealing with Rainnea and the service provided was excellent - we look forward to dealing with them again in future."
Colin Black, Leicestershire, England (SG185)

Specially Commissioned Celtic Memorial Cross
made in Highland Oak with engraved brass insert, approx. 1m high

"When our 24 year old son died in 2008, we desperately wanted a Celtic memorial cross to be carved for his memorial. We found Rab & Tanya's site purely by accident.
We asked Rab if we could commission a cross, and although this is most certainly not his normal type of project, he was very happy to take this on.
For Tony & myself, and indeed everyone who has seen this finished cross, we all think that is truly stunning and a work of art and craftsmanship. We both feel so privileged to have been able to work with Rab, a true gentleman.
He has given us the most precious thing we could have asked for.
More so, we actually collected Grants cross from the beautiful" Rainnea" and had the pleasure of Rab & Tanyas company in their beautiful home.We hope that we will continue to stay in contact, and visit you both when we next come to Scotland. X"
Ally and Tony
