Sgain-Dubh

   This small knife is used by the Scots, and most often worn in the stocking, but it can also be worn on the belt, or strapped to a travel bag. This all purpose knife was rugged, for daily use, but also part of fashionable dress. The handle is usually made of stag horn, and the blade is about 10 centimeters (4 inches) long.
