    WTB: Daywear Sgian Dubh

    Antler, wood, or resin. I would like one with a blade, please, even if it's blunt. My price preference would be middle of the road. Not cheap junk but it doesn't need to be a priceless heirloom, either. Thanks!

    Sheffield Cutlery Shop?

    I purchased one from the Sheffield Cutlery Shop, and was very happy with the quality. I think their lower cost models might be what you're looking for. Here's a link to their sgian dubhs.
    Trying to look good on a budget.

    They are perfect. I will post here if I end up buying one. Thanks!

    Look forward to the review - thinking of getting some of their blades for a couple of DIY projects.

    I have also been looking at Ullabox Creations www.etsy.com/shop/UllapoolBoxCreations?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=693391231 and recently bought a wooden kilt pin from Aspect6 - who do some interesting wood-handled sgians - although for some reason their prices have more than doubled in the last month www.etsy.com/shop/Aspect6?ref=simple-shop-header-name&listing_id=588827315

    I have previously bought some Comrie Craft sgians - good range of wood- and stag- handles but they are no longer trading - might be able to pick up some stock with the kilt sellers (although I haven't had much luck finding any online).
