Scotland hosts two types of native deer and they can often be seen roaming the Highlands. For this reason, the Stag has turned into an icon of Scotland! This Day Sgian Dubh’s handle is created from Stag Horn to give a natural feel and look. It is topped with a black wooden trim.
Sgian Dubh is derived from Scots Gaelic and literally translates as ‘Hidden Knife’. Sgian Dubhs were concealed in the hose or boot to be used in defence or for a surprise attack! It also has the alternative spelling of ‘skean dhu’.
Day Sgian Dubhs are less formal than their Dress counterparts, and are best suited to be worn at informal or day events. They match well with a range of jackets, especially Tweeds.
The Stag Horn used in this item is harvested from antlers that have been shed by the Stag, ensuring that no animal is harmed in its collection.
