What is a Sgian Dubh?:
A Sgian Dubh is a small knife worn in the hose or sock of a Traditional Scottish Highland Outfit. There are as many explanations as to the true meaning of Sgian Dubh as there are ways to spell it. Sgian Dubh, Skean Dhu, Sgian Dhu but it is generally accepted to mean a dark or hidden knife or dagger. Often antler is referred to as deer horn but antlers are actually bone, unlike horn which is a keratin.

Due to new mailing restrictions Sgian Dubhs are now sent in the UK via courier. Kilt Pins, Sgian Brews etc are unaffected.

Stubborn Stag Sgian Dubhs and Kilt Pins are hand made using Scottish Red deer antler that is predominantly cast in March through to May each year.
