This day wear Sgian Dubh is made from real Stag horn (collected in Scotland) and is made in the UK. Please note that the blade is NOT sharpened for your safety.
Please note: Due to the fact that these are REAL stag horn sgian dubhs, no 2 are exactly alike. The product you receive will not be the EXACT one pictured, but very similar to it.

- Excellent! Philip Truitt
Price Value QualityMy Sgian Dubh was well made and was actually better than I expected, as I am critical about knives (Blade Show enthusiast). No excessive glue and not overly sharp for safe use. The antler was nicely scalloped and not overly large. I was pleasantly surprised! (Posted on 8/3/2019)

- Not worth your money Mike
Price Value QualityUnfortunately this item looked as though it had been assembled by a 6 year old. There was glue all over where the blade and handle came together. I've bought other items from USA Kilts and have been happy but this one was a complete dud. (Posted on 10/14/2014)
- Outstanding Day Wear William
Quality Price ValueVery satisfied with this Sgian Dubh. While there is a touch of glue at the handle where the tang was seated, the handle is cut to assist in the seating of the blade. My other Sgian Dubh is a torridon style where the blade is screwed into the handle and the blade merely sits flush to the handle. For a unique item, not a bad deal at all. Thanks guys!

Wooden and Stag Horn sgian dubhs are used more for casual and ‘day wear’ type outfits. Dress sgian dubhs (usually black in color with or without a stone on the top) are typically reserved for formal functions.
If you choose to wear a sgian dubh, we highly recommend wearing flashes… The elastic band on the flashes helps to keep the sgain dubh “secure” in your hose top. Without the flashes, the sgain dubh may easily fall out (and get lost).
Also, think about where you're going before tucking your sgian dubh into your hose... Many buildings have security screenings and a Sgian Dubh may be confiscated as a weapon. When in doubt, leave it at home or check it in your luggage.
Sgian Dubh, literally translated, means “Black Knife”. It was originally concealed in a small pocket, usually sewn into the armpit area. When in the company of friends, it would be taken out and tucked into the top of the kilt hose as a sign of respect (i.e. not hiding a weapon).
Today, sgian dubhs are usually more decorative than utilitarian. They are worn by tucking about 2/3 of the (sheathed) knife into the top of the kilt hose. Which leg it is worn on is determined by the dominant hand of the wearer (right handed guys put it in their right leg’s hose).
We try to keep this sgian dubh in stock at all times. In the rare instance that it is out of stock when you place your order, we will let you know within 24 hours.
