The blade of this knife IS sharpened, making it one of very few that serve a "utilitarian purpose". It is also the only sgian dubh we've ever seen with a retractable cork screw and bottle opener! Dozens of Scottish Clans names are available.
Please note the following for all Clan Crest items:
1. If the clan name you want is NOT listed on a particular product (try looking for alternate spellings), we do not offer it for that particular item.
2. Please allow 4 to 6 weeks for delivery of Clan Crest items.
3. All Irish name items will come in the GAELIC spelling (what's in parentheses), NOT the ENGLISH spelling.

- Nice but illegal in NV Campbell
Quality Price ValueReally nice knife with the added accessories. The clan crest is a nice touch too. Unfortunately the knife is over 3 inches so it would be considered a concealed weapon in Nevada. (Posted on 6/4/2018)

- In itself a wonderful small knife GodDog
Value Quality PriceIf you have military background? If you're connected to Scottish culture? Here is the original Swiss Army knife or Leatherman multitool. And it's a sharp, well made, useful knife. On top of that it looks good in your sock top when wearing a kilt. (Posted on 3/29/2018)

- Nice addition to my kilt! Maxwell
Price Value QualityI really like it, but agree with previous remark regarding knife blade quality. Since I expect to be using the openers more than the blade, I don't think it will be a problem. Very happy with the look and feel. (Posted on 5/16/2016)

Price Value QualityI lost my last Sgian Dubh. Same model. I had to have the same one. This is the real deal. Very sharp blade with corkscrew and bottle opener. Best I've seen. Lucky me it was on sale and shipped faster than anticipated. They always comes through! (Posted on 4/6/2015)

Price Value QualityLove the idea. The execution lags a bit though. The blade suffers. with the quality of knife blades at this price point, this one falls short. The handle, corkscrew, bottle opener/screw driver are better quality than the blade. Don't get me wrong, it is stuck in my hose as I type this, just wish the blade were of a little better quality. Good over all. (Posted on 3/27/2015)

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).
AvailabilityThe Clan Crest sgian dubh is a 'custom' item. Generally, this product ships within 4 to 6 weeks of the order date.
