My great grandmother was descended from Scots in Fife. That makes us part of the MacDuff Clan. Here is my round from the Big Box Store. It took about an hour…very pleased with my first long engrave attempt.
Slainte’! Clan Donnachaidh here! We were ancestral neigbors! Pitlochry is where my clan hails from.
They both look awesome
Haven’t lasered mine yet
Clan Innes of Moray Father’s Side
Clan Mathiesen Mother’s side
The Dalriadan clans of ancient Scotland spawned the ancestors of the Mathiesen family.
Two gifts for some McKenzies in my life:
Well, we dinna get dressed up for nothin’…
The fourth in my sword series, a fullsize claymore. It’s decorated with clan imagery engraves and inlay. Quarantine necessitates that I use a different international unit of measure as bananas are hard to come by. I submit the humble chicken egg as an alternative.
Blade - 1/8” Baltic birch plywood (3layers)
Handle - figured black walnut ( from Kim Oberlin)
Pommel and crossguard embellishment - Yellowheart
Inlay - redheart
Not just any dirk, a bonny dirk.
Let’s see. This is a matching clan-themed dirk to go with the claymore I recently posted. Not much more to say about the process that hasn’t already been said, so I’ll just leave it at that.
Baltic birch blade, figured black walnut handle, Yellowheart pommel, redheart inlay. Materials chosen to match the claymore. Overall length is about 18”.
Those are badass! Nice work
