Scottish & Celtic Knives and Daggers

Of all Scottish and Celtic knives and daggers, the most popular was the Highland dirk. This long, multipurpose knife was used for skinning and cutting through animal bone and was also a great close-combat weapon. The preferred technique was to hold the dirk with the point facing downwards. Following the uprising in 1745, many broadswords were turned into dirks.

Other popular Scottish and Celtic daggers included the smaller sgian-dubh. This single-edged knife was meant for preparing food and useful for self-defense. It was kept in a holster near the armpit or up a sleeve. “Dubh” is the Gaelic term for black and so it is no surprise that the scabbard and handle were typically fashioned from dark-colored leather or wood. Due to its size, the sgian-dubh became popular in Scotland in the 18th century when carrying weapons was prohibited in the country. After the ban was lifted, these knives were worn openly in the stocking.

Museum Replicas carries a wide selection of dirks and dubhs that are as good as any you’ll find. Each knife is made from high-quality material and with beautiful detail. These items can augment any knife collection and if you are seeking the perfect companion piece to complete your Scottish ensemble, you have come to the right place.

Review of: Damascus Sgian Dubh

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 need to figure how to keep the dirk in the scabbard. Some type of tie down that lets me release it. Keep up the good work.
