Traditional Sgian Dubh Colored Gem Top

Our standard sgian dubh is surprisingly good for the price, and this one is even better! The blade is high-quality stainless steel, 3 1/2″ long. It comes with a sharp, usable edge.

Plastic handle and sheath, with chrome plated, metal mounts. The fit and finish is very good. While the “gem” is still plastic, it is better quality than our standard standard sgian dubh.

Scots make our Clan Crest Sgian Brew in Glasgow. They fit into your hose, and don’t fall out, like some other sgian brews. Our Clan Crest Stag Handle Sgian Dubh have a small clan crest badge inlaid into the end of the antler handle. Choose from 6 different stone colors for your Fancy Sgian Dubh. They’re specially made in Scotland. The sheath features a trefoil knot on the tip, and an intricate Celtic knot near the opening. 

Our Pewter Thistle Clan Crest Sgian Dubh is an upgraded version of our standard clan crest sgian dubh.  Scottish crafters make it with higher quality materials than the standard sgian dubh, and they inlay the clan crest into the handle. You also have the choice of 6 colors for the stone, rather than the one color for the standard sgian dubh. Our Pewter Celtic Knot Clan Crest Sgian Dubh features Celtic knot detailing on the handle and sheath. If you’d like an even more useful sgian dubh, check out The Officer Clan Crest Sgian Dubh. It features a corkscrew and bottle opener. Lastly, the Thistle Mount Clan Crest Sgian Dubh features your clan crest and choice of stone color (out of 6 colors). The thistle motif on the sheath tip and the thistle mount around the opening of the sheath set it apart.

    Very satisfied with the Sgian Dubh on order #1077889. Still waiting for delivery of Irish Coat of Arms Plaid Brooch on order #1077581.

    Perfect for crossing into Canada and risking one of my good sgian dubhs being confiscated at the border. Canada’s knife laws are somewhat ambiguous and subject to customs inspector’s whims. My son is getting married in Banff next month. I doubt that many people will closely inspect my knee. It’s a bit cheesy, but OK for a product made in China, perfect for my use when buried in the top of my hose.

    I recently purchased this for my cousin. Last year it was a kilt for the highland games, this year a basic sgian dubh. For the price it is an excellent piece that adds to proper dress. As a plus, not only did I like how it looked, but he absolutely loves it. In the same situation I would certainly buy another.

    I bought this for my 13 yr old son who has been playing the snare drum with a pipe band for a year now. He loved it and thought it was “cool” to wear with his uniform.

    Good price for a simple item

  6. Alec

    For an attractive sgian dubh, this one is good for the price. My only complaint is that the knife does not fit as snugly as it should in the scabbard.

  7. M. Edgar

    Well made and a good product for the price.
