Traditional Scottish made Sgian Dubh available in celtic or thistle pewter metal work with a stainless steel blade and fancy stone top.
Available in the Irish Sept name of your choice with 6 different coloured stones and supplied in a presentation box. Every feature of this Sgian Dubh is crafted to the highest standard. The stone, for example, is Gold foil backed, multi facet cut and is bezelled, rather than claw set. The Metalwork is traditional full 4 piece and is 100% Pewter plated in Palladium.
Our range of Irish crests were devised by the heraldic artist Romilly Squire, who served for many years as a consultant to the Chief Herald of Ireland. These badges use the Crests from Irish coats of arms, as the full arms are too cumbersome to use for the purpose of anything on a small scale. At its core, heraldry is all about communicating a clear message, so he focused on the crests to make the most elegant representations suitable for badges. He then set these crests within a traditional Claddagh circlet motif, along with the Irish-Gaelic rendering of the sept name. All the Irish crests we use are based on the historic examples found in the archives of the Irish Office of Arms.
Each Sgian Dubh is made to order, usually within a couple of days, although please allow up to five working days for dispatch in busy periods and up to ten for engraved.
