Scottish antique and vintage sgian dubh. 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 truly 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’).

Our range of fine hallmarked sterling silver skean dubh’s made by the Royal silversmiths Hamilton & Inches in Edinburgh, Scotland.  We can engrave many of these skean dubhs for presentation gifts.  Many of these skean dubhs complement the silver buckles, kilt pins and Scottish silver buttons we have available from our highland jewelry page.

We also offer a design service to create an individual design that can be as single item, or part of a Highland suite. The regimental and vintage range can be found further down the page.

Made to order approx 4 weeks

The Atholl Highlanders is a Scottish ceremonial infantry regiment. The regiment is not part of the British Army but under the command of the Duke of Atholl, and based in Blair Atholl.

The regiment was raised in Perthshire by John Murray, 4th Duke of Atholl as the 77th Regiment of Foot (or Atholl Highlanders, or Murray’s Highlanders) in December 1777. The regiment was formed as a relief for other regiments serving in North America, and spent most of its existence in Ireland.

More than 50 years later, in 1839, George Murray, 6th Duke of Atholl, as Lord Glenlyon, re formed the regimentas a bodyguard which he took to the Eglinton Tournament at Eglinton Castle, Ayrshire. Three years later, in 1842, the regiment escorted Queen Victoria during her tour of Perthshire and, in 1844, when the Queen stayed as a guest of the Duke at Blair Castle, the regiment mounted the guard for the entire duration of her stay. In recognition of the service that the regiment provided during her two visits, the Queen announced that she would present the Atholl Highlanders with colours, thus giving the regiment official status. The regiment’s first stand of colours was presented by Lady Glenlyon on behalf of the Queen in 1845.

Somehow they had acquired the majority of the original sets of dies for the then obsolete glengarry cap badges which had been worn by the British Army during the period 1874 -1881. Great for display as part of a collection or re enactors.

Feather bonnet badge in brass voided. This pattern St Andrews head under letter R and tail behind the body.
Ref KK 494. Circa 1880s.

East – West copper lugs.
