This description beautifully captures the craftsmanship and tradition behind the Scottish sgian dubh, emphasizing its quality and cultural significance. The sgian dubh, crafted by The Sgian Dubh Company in Scotland, is heralded as the highest quality available, each presented in a prestigious blue presentation box, proudly declaring its Scottish origin.

Customers have the option to personalize their sgian dubh with their Clan crest, available in lead-free pewter or fine sterling silver, catering to all Clans. Despite its luxurious quality, this sgian dubh is more accessible compared to antique versions with sterling silver fittings, which can fetch prices upwards of $1,000. The modern version boasts a resin handle and sheath with plated metal fittings, ensuring both durability and elegance.

Measuring 7 1/2” long by 1 3/8” wide, with a stainless steel blade and nickel silver plated fittings, this sgian dubh is adorned with an imitation glass blue sapphire, emerald green, or purple amethyst stone, allowing for personalization. The Clan crest, surrounded by intricate belt and buckle design, is handcrafted in high detail in sterling silver, reflecting the wearer's loyalty and Clan affiliation.

The historical significance of the sgian dubh is also highlighted, tracing its origins to its dark appearance and its traditional placement in the stocking during Highland attire, symbolizing goodwill and friendship. Additionally, the emphasis on the sgian dubh not being considered a weapon underscores its ceremonial role.

With over 43 years of experience in crafting Scottish Clan crest items, including jewelry for subsequent generations, The Sgian Dubh Company embodies a rich tradition of craftsmanship and heritage preservation.
