Elevate your Scottish heritage 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. The top is adorned with an imitation topaz, sapphire blue, or emerald green synthetic stone, adding a touch of elegance to this traditional piece.

Each Sgian Dubh is meticulously handcrafted with intricate detail, with your Clan crest showcased in the center surrounded by a detailed belt and buckle design, and your clan motto inscribed in raised relief lettering. In ancient tradition, the Clan chief presented the crest to clansmen as a symbol of loyalty and affiliation.

Please note that while this item is made to order, production typically takes only a few days. Every Clan is available, allowing you to customize your order with your Clan name in the comment area during checkout. The handle and sheath are crafted from resin material, while the fittings are plated, offering a well-made yet economical option compared to genuine old Sgian Dubhs with sterling silver fittings that can cost over $1,000. 

The name "Sgian Dubh," Gaelic for Black Knife, likely stems from the knife's dark appearance, with early handles often carved from black bog wood and blades darkened through use and age. Alternatively, it may have originated from the concealed nature of the knife, traditionally kept in open view in the top of the stocking during Highland attire wear to signify friendly intent.

With over forty years of experience in the Scottish Clan crest business, our company continues to provide quality Clan jewelry, now serving the children and grandchildren of our first customers. Wear this Sgian Dubh with pride and honor your Scottish roots in style.
