Sgian dubh opinion
Well, I just got my father this Sgian Dubh for Father's day
and I'm pretty well pleased with the quality and price. It's a very well made formal Sgian.
Now, I'm considering getting it for my wedding but I'm not sure. My kilt will be the Macdonald of the isles red as seen here...
Should I go, instead, for this one with the black stone?
They are both absolutely gorgeous, but I'd like the nicest, most formal one for my wedding and my opinion really is split between the two.

They're both beautiful and plenty "formal." The second would be more versatile, I'd say, because of the black stone.
Where did you buy the one for your Dad?

Bob....before you bid...check the P&P...it's £20 ($39.50) to the USA
Indeed...Carse of Gowrie is more reliable.

I own one the same as you are giving your dad (with a different stone). I wore it to my wedding and it looked great. I think both are quite nice but I agree with Bob C, the black stone would be more versitile.

Thanks. I'm bidding on one. My wife just might kill me.

Both are really nice, but I like the first one the best. (Maybe because I've been eyeing it myself for awhile) Can you get it with an amber or cairngorm stone? That would probably make it more versatile.

Thanks for the help.

Now green is my favourite colour. And it prompted me to decide on that with green hose and a green cravat.
