What is a Sgian Dubh and its highland tradition?
From Scottish Gaelic, Sgian ('knife') and Dubh ('black' or ‘dark’). The 'Dubh' does not refer to the colour of the knife as many people today believe. The 'Dubh' referred to the fact the knife was a hidden knife, hidden on the body within the owners own clothes or garments.
Highland tradition was that the hidden knife was removed, when going in to a premises, to signify you were entering in friendship. The highlander would placed his Sgian Dubh in his leggings or socks, where it could be seen. This is how it is worn in highland outfits across the world today, with many people not understanding the tradition.
