Tartanista Sgian-dubhs

The Sgian-dubh is a small single-edged knife which is worn to complete the traditional Scottish highland dress outfit along with a kilt (available elsewhere on our website to purchase).

The Sgian-dubh was originally used used for preparing and eating food such as meat, fruit and bread.

In modern times it is worn purely for aesthetic reasons.

Traditionally it is worn on the same side as the dominant hand.

We sell Sgian-dubhs in a huge range of colours and styles including blade-less Sgian-dubhs for a safer, cheaper, but still presentable look.
