Basic Safety Sgian Dubh
Sgian dubh could be translated from Gaelic as ‘hidden knife’ and that’s how the sgian dubh is worn, hidden inside the hose (socks) with just the top handle visible. The safety sgian dubh fits the bill as part of an outfit, but as there is no actual blade, it is first and foremost safe, but it is also suitable for shipping worldwide. And as it’s a stock item, it can be with your very quickly.
The detailing on this sgian dubh is remarkably fine for such a keenly priced item. Click on the ‘Enlarge’ icon on the photo and look at the design more closely. We think you’ll agree – right down to the impression of stitching on the back. And the definition on the flower head of the thistle motif is excellent.
The metalwork has two choices of finish – polished which is a shiny, silvery finish or antique, which is matt with a dark background to emphasise the design.
- Black resin handle construction
- Thistle design emblem on handle
