sgian dubh

Sgian Dubh is Gaelic for black ("dubh") dagger ("sgian"), as invariably the handle was carved from black bog oak, and perhaps more subtly, the word "black" implies "secret" or "covert" as in "blackmail" or "blackmarket". Normally this  weapon of last resort was concealed ,
only to be exhibited in the presence of a host out of courtesy, usually in the sock where it would be seen. 

The SD/R conforms to the traditional Regimental pattern whilst the Safety (SD/SAFE) versions
are toughened moldings with no blade, primarily intended for dress hire, sale to children and security purposes. 

The Clan Crest Sgian Dubh (SD/C) will accept any of our small crest badges - please refer to the Clan Crest List for Clan Crest availability.   The Stag Knives (SK) have simulated horn handles' the sheaths of SK/L and SK/T are leather.  All are supplied gift boxed except for the safety versions.
