THE ORIGIN OF THE "SGIAN DUBH"
The distant origins of the name Sgian Dubh (Gaelic for Black Knife) are thought to have emerged from this knife's dark appearance - the early handles were often hand carved from black bog wood and the blade would become dark through use and age.
A second theory is that it originated from the dark or sinister nature of an easily concealed weapon - which is why it has become traditional to keep the Sgian Dubh in open view in the top of the stocking whilst wearing Highland attire to show that its wearer is among friends and has no ill intent.
The Sgian Dubh was not, is not and should not be considered a weapon!
