Elevate your Highland attire with our exquisite Scottish Clan Crest Sgian Dubh—a traditional black-handled knife adorned with your Clan crest in lead-free pewter or fine sterling silver.

This brand-new Sgian Dubh measures 7-1/2” long by 1-3/8” wide, featuring a stainless steel blade and nickel silver plated fittings. At the top, an imitation topaz, sapphire blue, or emerald green synthetic stone adds a touch of elegance.

Each piece is meticulously handcrafted with intricate detail, with your Clan crest surrounded by a detailed belt and buckle design, bearing your clan motto in raised relief lettering. In ancient times, the Clan chief presented the crest to his clansmen as a symbol of loyalty and affiliation. The Clan Crest itself measures 11/16" (19.5mm) in diameter.

Please note that while this item is made to order, the process takes only a few days. With every Clan available, simply add your Clan name in the comment area during ordering to complete your special request.

It's important to note that while our Sgian Dubh is exceptionally crafted, the handle and sheath are made of resin material, and the fittings are plated. This model offers exceptional value compared to genuine old Sgian Dubhs with sterling silver fittings, which can sell for over $1,000.

The name "Sgian Dubh," Gaelic for Black Knife, likely originated from the knife's dark appearance, with early handles often carved from black bog wood. Another theory suggests it stems from the concealed nature of the knife, traditionally kept in open view in the top of the stocking while wearing Highland attire to indicate goodwill and lack of ill intent.

Embrace tradition with our Scottish Clan Crest Sgian Dubh, a timeless symbol of heritage and camaraderie. With over forty years of experience in the Scottish Clan crest business, we're honored to provide Clan jewelry for generations to come.
