Stag Handle Sgian Dubh

This stag handle sgian dubh is made in Scotland from real hand-carved red stag antler. Each piece is unique and random, and comes with a stainless steel blade and embossed leather sheath

In Celtic legend, which predates heraldry, the stag is a very powerful symbol. In early history, the stag in Ireland and Scotland was a very large and powerful animal. One of the rituals relating to leadership was to have the candidate hunt and kill a stag using only a knife made from a stag's horn. The person would then take on the persona of the stag, gaining its strength and wisdom.

It's a pretty knife, decent blade. The stag antler handle is quite curved. I've yet to tuck this into my hose but I think its going to stick out pretty far so I'll need to be careful that it doesn't fall out. The sheath is pretty loose too so I might put an extra stitch or two in it myself. For the price it's good.
Perfect for my sons and their new kilts and "stuff". I have always loved your site and catalogue.
Good looks and good quality with a solid, balanced and very usable blade.
A fine blade, though it could be sharpened further upon arrival. The handle is beautiful and unique, as described, but the protective coating of lacquer is a little thick. It was an excellent gift to my father, and I will probably be making future purchase at this site!
