    Not worth your money  Mike
    Unfortunately 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
    Very 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!

  • Buyers Guide

    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.

  • 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
