DAMASCUS SGIAN DUBHImage of Damascus Sgian Dubh SH2029 by Hanwei (SH2029) by CAS Hanwei
The CAS Hanwei Sgian Dubh (SH2029) rivals those of the Victorian era. Unlike other modern Sgian Dubhs that are decorative at best, our SH2029 is both handsome and fully functional, with a high-carbon fileworked damascus blade. The vibrantly patterned blade is crafted from several differing steels folded together into a single billet and the forged into form. Such blades were reputed to be tough, resistant to shattering and capable of being honed to a sharp, resilient edge. The blade features a full length tang and a basket-weave hardwood grip topped by a royal purple crystal. Complimented by a hardwood sheath and embossed fittings, this Sgian Dubh is a piece that any highlander would be proud to carry.

image of SH2029 Damascus Scottish Sgian Dubh by CAS Hanwei
THE SGIAN DUBH The wearing of a dirk, although not necessary, is generally carried in the loop on the kilt, at the waist, made for the dirk. A sgian-dubh, (or small dagger) however, is carried in the right hand stocking on all occasions. There is little that students of highland dress agree on about the sgian dubh, even its spelling. It is seen as skein dubh, sgian dhub, skene du, skean dhu and skhian dubh, and doubtless others. Phonetically, it is pronounced skein or skeen doo. The meaning, however, is clear: sgian means knife or dagger, dubh means black. The sgian dubh is never to be drawn for trivial or mundane purposes and must taste blood before it can be resheathed, even if the user must nick his own finger.   Related Items
