The first recorded use of this type of modified Sgian Dubh was during the Crimean War of 1853 to 1856. Officers of the Highland Regiments commissioned these tools with corkscrews and hoof picks to help them with day-to-day camp life. A number of variations were seen thereafter up to and during the First World War, but the practice died out thereafter, when the battlefield kilt fell out of use with new forms of modern warfare.
Gaelic Themes is proud of its craftsmanship and authenticity as represented in this product and we have here replaced the hoof pick with a screwdriver and bottle opener as befitting modern needs.
Hand made in our factory in Glasgow, Scotland, assembled in stainless steel with Indian ebony handle, supplied with leather sheath and presentation box.
