    Exactly what I needed  Michael
    While prefer to carry a live blade I make appearances in Court. Therefore a live blade cannot be worn, against the law don't-ca know. As soon as I saw this item I snapped one up.

    Looks real feels real and the Sheriff doesn't freak out.

    I would recommend to others. (Posted on 4/9/2020)
    Excellent  Lynn
    Does just what I wanted — a sgian dubh that isn't, for travel, public use, etc. where a real blade is a bad idea. Looks real! Very real! (Posted on 8/10/2019)
    A good accessory  Ray
    A good formal wear accessory when the situation warrants. (Posted on 5/25/2019)
    Fabulous Product  Manyahope
    The imitation sgian dubh is for a child to wear to the Highland Games. He hasn't seen it yet, but I know he will be thrilled. It looks like the real thing. Great price and fast shipping. Thank you USA Kilts. (Posted on 3/22/2018)
    I thought the price was high.   John
    I thought the price was high, but I needed a look-like because I teach in school where knifes are not allowed. So me, paying almost the cost of a real knife was a good fit. (Posted on 10/18/2017)
    wonderful  Jellyfish
    This is perfect. I really didn't want to wear something that had a blade. So, this is perfect. (Posted on 9/22/2017)
    Needed for a cruise  pjmonroe
    I needed a sgian dubh to wear with my formal kilt outfit on a cruise and this fit the bill. It looks good and serves a purpose. As usual the service was great and the shipping fast. Always a pleasure doing business with USA kilts! (Posted on 5/11/2016)

  • Buyers Guide

    Wooden and Stag Horn sgian dubhs are used more for casual and ‘daywear’ 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.  This particular sgian dubh is actually best for that instance as there is no blade... just plastic and shiny metal bits that look like a real sgian dubh.

  • Fun Facts

    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).

  • Availability

    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.
