Introducing our distinguished Scottish Clan Crest Sgian Dubh, a traditional black-handled knife embellished with your Clan crest in lead-free pewter or fine sterling silver.

This brand-new Sgian Dubh measures 7-1/2” in length and 1-3/8” in width, featuring a stainless steel blade and nickel silver plated fittings. At the top, you'll find an imitation topaz, sapphire blue, or emerald green synthetic stone, adding a touch of elegance to this timeless piece.

Your Clan crest takes center stage, surrounded by a meticulously crafted belt and buckle design, with your clan motto proudly inscribed in raised relief lettering. In ancient times, the Clan chief presented his crest to his clansmen as a symbol of loyalty and affiliation—a tradition upheld in this exquisite Sgian Dubh. Each piece is meticulously handcrafted in sterling silver, ensuring intricate detail and lasting quality. The Clan Crest itself measures 11/16" (19.5mm) in diameter.

Please note that while this item is made to order, it requires only a few days for completion. Every Clan is available, and to personalize your order, simply add your Clan name in the comment area during checkout. It's essential to mention that while our Sgian Dubh is crafted with precision, the handle and sheath are made from resin material, and the fittings are plated. This model offers exceptional quality at an affordable price, as a genuine Sgian Dubh with sterling silver fittings typically sells for over $1,000.00.

The origins of the name "Sgian Dubh" stem from its dark appearance, with early handles often carved from black bog wood and the blade acquiring a dark hue over time. Another theory suggests its name originates from its concealed nature as a hidden weapon, although it should not be considered as such. Tradition dictates that the Sgian Dubh be openly displayed in the top of the stocking while wearing Highland attire, symbolizing goodwill and friendship.

With over forty years of experience in the Scottish Clan crest business, we take pride in crafting Clan jewelry for the descendants of our first customers, ensuring that the rich heritage of each Clan endures through generations.
