A Scottish tradition, the original Sgian Dubhs were frequently worn under the shirt close to the armpit. Now it is traditional for the Sgian Dubh to be worn in the stocking of the Highlander and the knife is frequently called a stocking dirk. The term Sgian Dubh itself actually means black handled knife. Our high carbon steel Sgian Dubh has a black wooden handle that is carved on one side and smooth on the other. Embossed nickel silver fittings feature a thistle motif. Comes with a sheath. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp.

Nice looking Sgian Dubu
The handle is a plastic resin.  
The handle is not wood.
You can heat a pin and melt it.

I like the traditional handle mostly a display piece or for Scottish attire.
