The Sgian Dubh, or sock knife, first appeared in military use in around 1800 and is worn in kilted dress uniforms today. The knife has a traditional serrated blade and horn handle. The sgian dubh is supplied gift boxed with an embossed leather sheath. The cap is adorned with a pewter stag's head design. Stags shed their antlers naturally, and no cruelty is involved in the making of this product.
As the sgian dubh is made from natural materials, there will be some variation in colour and markings, guaranteeing a unique product every time.

In 1749 The Humpherson family founded the horn works in Bewdley, when horn carving was prolific. Working techniques have changed very little over the centuries, it is one of the things that defines Abbeyhorn – "handmade using traditional techniques". All raw materials are sourced from ethical sources, as a by-product which could otherwise be wasted.
The business is now happily settled in the little Village of Holme, in the heart of Northern England just on the cusp of the Lake District. It has produced props for Vikings, Harry Potter, and Game of Thrones.
