Welcome to Glittering Edge Ltd.

We are a small Scottish knife making company specialising in both swords and knives.  These are traditionally forged, or ground out using more modern techniques.  Often a combination of both.

We strive for high quality products and friendly service and will consider most jobs.  Our true passion lies in creating one-off items but do offer a range of other stock blades.

Our general production usually falls into 1 of 4 categories;

  • Swords
  • Sgian dubh – traditional Scottish knife, worn with a kilt
  • Chef and culinary knives
  • Bushcraft knives – hunting/fishing

What we offer

Our blades are hand-made in our Edinburgh workshop, whether to historical specifications or your own.  Our blades are designed with your input and made to last.  With that in mind, all of our blades are hardened and tempered from a range of carbon and stainless steels before they leave our workshop and into your possession.

We can source a variety of steels fit for your needs and will happily help you design your own custom blade.  We can even make our own damascus (pattern welded) steel in-house.

It is our aim that you are  proud of your purchase from us and will endeavour to strive for high quality products and service.

If you have enquiries please do not hesitate to get in touch, we would love to hear from you.

We also offer Bladesmithing lessons and off the back of these, are able to arrange a demonstration visit for yourself or a small group of up to 4 people. View Bladesmithing lessons for the complete information or send an email to bookings@glitteringedge.com to arrange a visit.
