Sgian Dubh is Gaelic for black (“dubh”) dagger (“sgian”), as invariably the handle was carved from black bog oak, and the word “black” also implies “covert”. Normally this weapon of last resort was concealed, and only removed in the presence of a host out of courtesy, usually to be placed in the sock where it would be seen. Simulated Stag handle with stone inset.The blade is made from pewter that is polished and then plated with palladium. This gives a silver-like finish and is scratch and tarnish resistant. The complete piece is approximately 8.7 inches long. Supplied in attactive gift packaging, with general historical notes.   The reverse of the handle is attractively carved with an extract from Robert Burns; “My heart is in the Highlands, my heart is not here; My heart is in the highlands a chasing the deer.”
