            Wonderful Gift From My Brother

            My brother sent me this "Skeen Dubh" as a gift. I belong to an Irish Bagpipe band and needed a Skeen Dubh as the final touch to my uniform. Not only was I personally touched by my little brothers thoughtful efforts, the Skeen Dubh" is perfect. I will charish it for ever. Thanks Bro!

            Smaller than advertised.

            By Don

            from Illinois

            Verified Reviewer

            "Decorative" is accurate. The knife is slightly less than 6 1/2 inches in length versus the advertised 7 1/2 inches. It is difficult to grip if you are older than 8yrs old...I was disappointed with this as it seems less than authentic for a "historic" item.

            Each year at the end of winter, Scottish red deer stags shed their impressive antlers to begin growing them anew in the spring. Highlanders traditionally collected them to use as handles for knives and walking sticks. A polished piece of red deer antler, collected in the Scottish Highlands, forms the handle of our walking stick. The shaft is made of chestnut, with a walnut cap. Red deer are indigenous in Scotland, with depictions found as far back as sixth-century stone carvings by the medieval Picts.

            Ruggedly built for outdoor adventure but classic enough for evenings in town, this Shetland wool cardigan is an excellent choice for travel. Knit by a 135-year-old mill in Hawick, a town along the Teviot River in the southeastern Scottish Borders known for its knitwear. Along with angling in the local rivers, Hawick outdoor culture is marked by the annual Common Riding, where hundreds of riders on horseback celebrate a 16th-century victory over an English raiding party. This Shetland wool sweater is designed to withstand the brisk weather of the British Isles. Its natural water-resistance and moisture-wicking properties keep you warm and dry. Suede elbow patches and quilted suede on the chest help resist wear and tear from bags and camera straps. Suede trim on two front patch pockets.

            Many of the knitwear companies in Hawick can trace their history back to the late 1770s, when the first knitting machine was brought to this small town in the Scottish Borders. Hand-knitting traditions date back at least another 200 years. The Scottish company that makes this wool pullover is a relative newcomer at only 140 years old. The two-tone design features a bird’s-eye stitch for the body, with solid navy blue shoulders and elbow detail.

Crafted in a 19th-century mill on the banks of the Teviot River, deep in the Scottish Borders.
