The sgian-dubh (/ˌskiːən ˈduː/ skee-ən-doo; Scottish Gaelic pronunciation: [s̪kʲɪnˈt̪uh]) is a small, single-edged knife (Gaelic sgian) worn as part of traditional Scottish Highland dress along with the kilt. Originally used for eating and preparing fruit, meat, and cutting bread and cheese – as well as serving for other more general day-to-day uses such as cutting material and protection, it is now worn as part of traditional Scottish dress tucked into the top of the kilt hose with only the upper portion of the hilt visible. The sgian-dubh is normally worn on the same side as the dominant hand.
Remember, lets bring Kilts to the modern day. As in Europe Kilts have been moved into modern 21 century fashion. Kilts are no longer for Scots only, or for formal occasions. With modern textile blends and men realizing the freedom kilts afford, they have become quite the daily wear in Europe as they've become more affordable with machine made versus bespoke. Its an honor for another family to see someone wearing and enjoying their family tartan, so choose the one(s) you like and MAKE IT YOUR OWN, feel the breeze between your knees!
I have created group called Ronald's Kilt Klub that I'd like to grow into a fun social group here in Montreal, or for anyone visiting our beautiful city.. The group can get together in our kilts and have cookouts, go to happy hours, bar crawls, go on hikes etc... I would Love to have people who love kilts or admire them, to spread the word, join the group and come up with ideas for this Spring and Summer, post them and get this going! Once you join, please feel free to post selfies and photos of you in your kilts!!!
