Saltire St. Andrews Enamel Sgian Dubh with Polished Pewter Mounts & Plain Top.

 

The sgian-dubh (pronounced skeen-do) is a small, single-edged knife (Gaelic sgian) worn as part of traditional ScottishHighland dress along with the kilt. Originally used for eating and preparing fruit, meat, and cutting bread and cheese – as well as serving for other more general day-to-day uses such as cutting material and protection, it is now worn as part of traditional Scottish dress tucked into the top of the kilt hose with only the upper portion of the hilt visible. The sgian-dubh is normally worn on the same side as the dominant hand.

 

  • Supplied in a Sgian Dubh Co black presentation box.
  • Designed & created exclusively for The Sgian Dubh Company, Scotland.
