Knife SGIAN-DUBH (pronounced ‘ski-en doo’) is our modern version of the traditional Scottish knife, which was called “black” because of the concealed way of carrying it. It is a small, singled-edged knife (Gaelic sgian) worn as part of traditional Scottish Highland dress along with the kilt.

As with many knives their origins came from military use. The sgian dubh was a hidden weapon for use in hand-to-hand combat. This would be when the primary weapon was lost, unavailable, or impractical for what needed to be accomplished.

The small knife SGIAN-DUBH by Blade Brothers Knives lies securely in the hand due to the extension of the ergonomic handle towards the blade. Straight bevels from the spine make it comfortable both for household work and for making short cuts and stabs.

Part of the EDC culture is about being prepared for what you might encounter. You want to be covered for your normal circumstance and have a little extra just in case.
