Sgian Dubhs and simulated Stag Horn Knives.
The word Sgian Dubh comes from the Gaelic meaning " dagger black". The highlanders adopted this small weapon after the Highland Dress Proscription Act, which came into effect after the battle of Culloden. This act made it illegal for Highlanders to bear arms of any sort. The relatively small size of the Sgian Dubh was deemed acceptable and it therefore became a popular utility knife.
The Sgian Dubh is worn tucked into the sock. This is another
popular place for storing items such as pipes or reading glasses that are too long or delicate to be stuffed into the sporran. Traditionally it is worn on the left leg, however it is acceptable for lefties to wear it on the other side. Sgian
dubh handles are made from a variety of materials such as ebony or antler horn and decorated with jewels metal or leatherwork.
