Sgian Dubh The Black Knife, The kilt knife. Made in Scotland by a Scot
The Black in the name does not mean the colour, it was black meaning hidden, bad or a black deed. The knife was hidden under the arm or down the back of the neck and was used as a sudden strike weapon. The idea of it being worn in the hose (sock) with the top showing was a sign that you were open and not trying to conceal anything that might be a threat to your host, but you were still armed and could defend yourself. If you gave a knife as a gift, it symbolises Trust, as you were giving something that could take your life. A KILTED gentleman is not dressed if he does not wear a Sgian Dubh with his KILT.
