Help me find a modern sgian dubh, please.

For those who live in areas where firearms are not an option and those that are smart enough to have a back up.

Help me find a modern sgian dubh, please.

Post by crypto » Sun Feb 23, 2014 2:24 pm

Lately I've been wearing a modern kilt to ZS events with a sporran made out of a maxpedition admin pouch, and I'd like to have a sgian dubh to stick in my boot that matches the look. That means I can't get away with a stag horn or anything traditional.

So, if anyone has any recommendations for a straight 4-5" knife without any belly and either rubber or micarta on the friendly end, I'd be appreciative.

Difficulty level: Must not be truly double-edged, as it runs afoul of state dagger/dirk laws.

I know you want a fixed blade rather than a folder, but Cold Steel makes a nifty folder in 3 sizes that would be fitting-ish.

Those are all really nice, but theres no prices on the guys website and the waitlist is 2 years long until he starts offering you knives first, and he doesnt do customs at all.

LOL I'm not willing to put up with merchants like that.

I had to dig around a little to find the prices. I didn't see the 2yr waiting list anywhere, but, I was looking for prices... $185-$250

My sgian dubh is a Cold Steel Culloden, been with me for almost 20 years and was in my sock when I got married - great knife and if it's grandson, the Brave Heart is anything as good then grab one.

Or his deserts are small,
Who dares not put it to the touch,
To win or lose it all.

^^This. I had a custom made because I really didn't see anything that appealed to me.
