Sgian Dubh Knife

The term "Sgian Dubh" itself actually means black handled knife. Our forged carbon steel Sgian Dubh which weighs less than 2 oz., has a black wooden handle that is carved on one side, smooth on the other.

Scottish Sgian Dubh

A Scottish tradition, the original Sgian Dubhs were frequently worn under the shirt close to the armpit. Now it is traditional for the Sgian Dubh to be worn in the stocking of the Highlander, and the knife is frequently called a "stocking dirk".
