Tucked into the top of your kilt hose or boot, the sgian dubh is an important accessory to compliment your kilt, and complete your outfit. Choose from Dress Sgian Dubhs, Day Sgian Dubhs, Stag Horn Sgian Dubhs, Sgian Bru, Safety Sgian Dubh, and Economy Sgian Dubhs.
Dress Sgian Dubhs
You can wear a Dress Sgian Dubh anytime, whether formal or casual, but traditionally these fancy sgian dubhs are intended for full formal dress.
Day Sgian Dubhs
Day sgian dubhs, or "day wear" sgian dubhs, are traditionally worn with more casual attire for work or play. Antler, horn, and wood are common materials for day sgian dubh handles. No surprise, since these originated as the common man's or working man's sgian dubh, and they worked with what materials they had available.
Today, you can wear a "day" sgian dubh with any kilt or attire you want to. If you want to wear your stag horn or blackwood sgian dubh with a formal kilt and Prince Charle, please do! In general they tend to go best with more casual, rather than formal outfits.
Stick it in your sock, just like a sgian dubh. But, surprise! It's a bottle opener!
Do you travel to or attend events that don't allow "weapons"? If you have to carry a fake sgian dubh anyway, you might as well have some fun with it! Carry a Sgian Bru™!
Safety Sgian Dubh
It's hard to like a fake sgain dubh, but it's a nice option to have if you know you are going to be somewhere that the real thing isn't allowed. (It's worth mentioning that drunken groomsmen are less likely to get themselves into trouble if you have given them fakes!)
