Description

The Sgian Dubh (pronounced “skee(a)n doo”) is a ceremonial dagger (Gaelic sgian) worn as part of the modern Scottish Highland dress along with the kilt. It is worn tucked into the hose with only the pommel visible. The name comes from the Gaelic 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 Generation 2/Legacy Arms version is based on the stories and theories surrounding the knife’s origin and the meaning of “Dubh” in Gaelic.
