Traditional Sgian Dubh

A Traditional Sgian Dubh
(pronounced "skee(a)n doo") is a ceremonial dagger (Gaelic sgian) worn as part of the modern Scottish Highland dress along with the kilt. It is worn tucked into the hose with only the pommel visible.

The name comes from the Gaelic meaning "black knife", where "black" means secret, or hidden, as in the word blackmail. This is based on the stories and theories surrounding the knife's origin and the meaning of "Dubh" in Gaelic. It is also suggested that "black" may refer to the usual colour of the handle of the knife.

Generation 2 has made a Sgian Dubh simple in design and perfect to fit in your hose or sleeve.
The handle is Iron Wood and features a tempered, full tang blade, peened at the top of the handle.
A wooden scabbard wrapped in leather is included.

Blade length:  3.375 " 
Overall:  6.625 "
Weight: 2 oz.
