Overview


A Scottish tradition, originally Sgian Dubhs were commonly worn under the shirt close to the armpit. Now the stocking dirk is traditionally worn in the stocking of the Highlander. The term Sgian Dubh itself actually means black handled knife. Our Damascus Sgian Dubh has a black wooden handle that is carved on one side and smooth on the other. Embossed nickel silver fittings feature a thistle motif, comes with a sheath. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts. Can be sharpened for additional fee. Also available without Damascus blade.

    Bought it as a gift for a cousin who plays bagpipes professionally. He's extremely pleased with this new addition to his performance outfit. Says it even comes in handy for cutting reeds.

    I bought this knife as a fancy functional letter opener for my office.  I paid extra for sharpening and that was worth it.  I was very happy when i got it and glad i use it everyday.

    Pretty blade but won't hold an edge, I've got a cheap pocket knife that I've had for years and use daily but only have to sharpen it every month or so.  Also the furniture looks like aluminum.  All in all, I think I wasted my money on this knife and if I could give it less that a one star rating I would.

    I paid extra for the sharpening. Nothings loose, it's really sharp, and it looks pretty good. The sheath only goes in one way, and the metal parts of it are a different kind than the rest of the knife; the sheath looks more 'chrome' and the rest has a more yellowish 'silver' kinda hue. The sheath 'recesses' into the knife a bit under that metal piece, and the space between has a small piece of red velvet. Mine smells like machine oil and the velvet is soaked in oil, probably from the sharpening process. The damascus pattern looks really good, but the stamped thistle pattern on the handle feels "so-so" to me. The overhanging piece that the sheath goes into is really thin and I bent it with my thumb so be careful with that. This knife is a 'B' student.

    Bonny Scottish Dirk

    #400806
    This 11-3/4" long dirk showcases crisp etchings of the traditional Scottish foliage and thistle motif on both sides of the blade. A 5" long, swagged false edge and a knurled pattern on the blade back mark this dirk with distinction. The black wooden handle is carved in an interweave pattern dotted with ornamental nickel silver tacks. The sheath is wood covered with leather and reinforced with metal throat and tip. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

    Early Scottish Dirk

    #400508
    This style dirk is a direct descendant of the medieval ballock dagger. The grip form began to change, probably sometime in the late 16th century, but soon developed a form that was purely Scottish. The blade was long and single-edged. Made to use alone, with a shield and sword, or just with a basket-hilt claymore. We have replicated an early version of the dirk. The hardwood handle is carved with a chevron like pattern copied from an original of the same time period. For those with a serious interest in the Highlands, this is a must for any collection. Includes scabbard. Can be sharpened for additional fee.
