Sgian Dubh

Armed with Nathan’s knife making lessons and a trip to Scotland for Nathan’s 18th birthday, Nathan and I attempted to make our own sgian dubhs and a very useful sgian ‘brew.’

The sgian dibh is the small knife tucked inside the sock of a kilt wearing young man.  Known also as a ‘dark’ or ‘hidden’ knife.  We purchased our blades from Rainnea
