1931 Sterling Silver Vintage Edinburgh Sgian Dubh

Thomas Kerr Ebbutt 1931 Edinburgh hallmarked sterling silver sgian dubh. Basket weave carved blackwood hilt mounted with a cairngorm stone.

Blade with some age pitting as they all tend to when they have been used ( see photos ). In good used vintage condition

Length. 183mm

We have a passion for fine antique and collectible sgian dubh’s and Highland dirks. We source antique Jacobite styles of the 18th century, high Victorian styles and regimental patterns of WW1 – WW2. Our sgian dubh and dirk range make wonderful addition to any Highland dress collection. In addition to the antique range we also make wonderful new silver sgian dubh for clients, these will become desirable antiques of the future.

The Gaelic sgian dubh meaning “black knife”, where “black” may refer to the usual colour of the handle of the knife. It is also suggested that “black” means secret, or hidden, as in the word blackmail. This is based on the stories and theories surrounding the knife’s origin and the meaning of “Dubh” in Gaelic, in particular those associated with the Highland custom of depositing weapons at the entrance to a house prior to entering as a guest. Despite this practice, a small twin edged-dagger, (‘Mattucashlass’), concealed under the armpit, combined with a smaller knife, (‘Sgian dubh’).

Bespoke Pipe Band Drum Major’s Baldric Sash

Since 1998 The House of Labhran has designed and created a wide range of hand embroidered Drum Major’s baldric sashes and flag carrier sashes for clients around the world. Hand embroidered in gilt wires, silver and gold braids and silks on a fine blazer cloth with real soft leather linings. The Drum Major’s baldrics are mounted with miniature drum sticks and have a fringed gilt bottom edge.

The flag carrier sashes are adjustable and have a metal cup to hold your flag or standard pole and are trimmed in military gilt braids.

The position of Drum Major originated in England with the corps of drums in 1650. Military units performed mostly duty calls and battle signals during that period, and a fife and drum corps, directed by the Drum Major, would execute short pieces to communicate to units in the field. With the arrival of military concert bands and pipe bands around the 18th century, the position of the Drum Major was adapted to those ensembles.

The House of Labhran are proud to have supplied to the Scottish Highland Regiments, Canadian Regiments US Army, USAF baldrics, Fire & Rescue, Military Academy Bands, RAF, ATC, Police, Scottish & Irish Flute Bands, Royal British Legion, Parachute Regiment and British army.

Our in house team will help create a a bespoke Drum Major’s baldric or flag carrier sash that will be carried on your band for years to come.
