- Very high quality. Bill
Price Value QualityThe quality and workmanship on the sterling silver sgian dubh
knives is outstanding. Knives are actually much nicer than
the photograph is able to show. Price was little more than the price of some that do not compare. (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.
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).
