The Sgian Dubh Company have been manufacturing Sgian Dubh in Scotland for over 30 years, gradually developing their range over this time. They now have the best Sgian Dubh range available anywhere in the World with a wide variety of styles to appeal to all, and now we are able to offer the full range here on our website.

The term Sgian Dubh is most commonly pronounced in English ‘Skee-an Doo’

The Sgian Dubh is a small ornamental Knife traditionally worn in the top of the sock by a Highlander in Scotland. The flat edge is normally worn in the right sock by right-handed people. The name is Scots Gaelic – the word ‘sgian’ means knife or dagger and ‘dubh’ means black, referring to the colour of the handle which was originally made from black hardwood. Various spellings of the word are recorded in different books including skean, skian and skein. The word dubh can also be spelt dhu.

Here on the A Scents Of Scotland website we have the full range of Sgian Dubhs, Kilt Pins in both Pewter and Silver, Scottish Quiachs, quality Pocket Watches and Kilt Accessories especially suited to Highland Dress of all styles.

The Sgian Dubh Range

The Sgian Dubh (pronounced ‘ski-en doo’), is said to have originally been part of a set of knives that were used by servants to clean, skin and dress the meat after the Lord (or Laird as they were known in Scotland) of the manor and his party had been out hunting game.
