Sometimes we kilt wearers travel where weapons are discouraged. Not to fear! The Sgian BREW is here! This stag horn sgian brew is made from real Stag horn (collected in Scotland) and is made in the UK. It features a bottle opener instead of a blade to pass through security easily and to open your favorite beverage even easier!
Please note: Due to the fact that these are REAL stag horn, no 2 are exactly alike. The product you receive will not be the exact one pictured, but very similar to it.

- TSA approved? Sgian Brew
Price Value QualityThis exceeded my expectations. Very handy for piping at a school function, where a blade was not appropriate. Expect it to be useful at the games. (Posted on 11/5/2014)

- Clever solution to the "no knives" problem at events! Jim Bob
Quality Price ValuePerfect product when event security presents a challenge to the highland kit. Besides, one never knows when a church key may come in handy. Here's to you. JB (Posted on 10/14/2014)
- Cruise Ship Approved Rob the Sparky
Quality Price ValueI bought this for myself as a solution to the "No Weapons" policy on cruise lines. It passed security with little question, once I showed the Security person what it was. I bought 3 more for my groomsmen, and will have all of them engraved. (Posted on 10/14/2014)

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. This sgian is perfect for travel as it has no blade!
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 brew 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.
