Bob Cleland, Knifemaker

Bob made knives for almost fifty years, beating his first blades out of files in the forge of the farm where he lived as a child. After moving to Skye almost forty years ago, he continued to make knives from his home workshop, perfecting his skills. When he took early retirement as a medical supplies engineer to concentrate full time on handmade knives in 2001, Jake returned to Skye (having studied Art and Classics at Edinburgh University) to work with him, learning from Bob's vast experience. There's a rare chance to purchase Bob's sgian dubhs here.
