Product information "Sgian Dubh with scabbard"
Sgian Dubh is a small, hand-forged, scottish knife with an ornamented wooden handle.
The name comes from the Gaelic sgian dubh meaning "black knife", where "black" may refer to the usual
colour of the handle of the knife. It is also suggested that "black" means secret, or hidden, as in the word
blackmail. This is based on the stories and theories surrounding the knife's origin and the meaning of "Dubh"
in Gaelic, in particular those associated with the Highland custom of depositing weapons at the entrance
to a house prior to entering as a guest. Concealed in the hose or boot, the sgian dubh would offer an element
of defence or of surprise if employed in attack.
