About the company

Glittering Edge Limited is a small, Edinburgh based company specialising in making swords and knives for various requirements.  Started by Greg Marr and Daniel Devoy after their paths crossed during a shared knife-making apprenticeship program in 2011.  Glittering Edge first started trading in March 2014 and have been based in the Leith area of Edinburgh since 2015.  During this time, our passion for creating your dreams in steel has only increased, alongside our skills to create higher quality items.

Over the years, we have been able to gain valuable learning opportunities from other craftsmen and artisans willing to share both their time, knowledge and resources with us in exchange for ours.   To this end, we are often able to utilise these newly acquired teachings into our own style within the company.

Product range

Over the years, we have undertaken a range of unique projects for our customers.  These are often based on original museum pieces wherever possible but we do cater to custom designs.  We also cater to customers needing blades for combat training.

Some custom options available on request include making pattern welded steel (damascus), using specific handle materials and having custom text etched into the steel.  Furthermore, we are happy to collaborate with other artists and craftsfolk where required.  We love being able to offer hand made, unique products.

Why choose us

Each blade is hand-made using a mix of modern and and traditional techniques.  This can vary depending on your budget, taste and end use of the blade.  We pride ourselves in being able to offer and live up to the expectations and quality our customers have come to expect from us over the years.

We are happy to discuss wholesale needs, in limited quantities – there are only 2 of us at the forge after all!

Loved Lord of the Rings? A fan of Game of Thrones?  Perhaps your ideal blade is still hidden within the depths of your favourite book series and has yet to be created.  If thats the case, why not get in touch to enquire about making it a reality!

Perhaps you want to forge your own knife?  Why not treat yourself to our Bladesmithing lessons!  See the full details “here” or contact bookings@glitteringedge.com
