The first recorded use of this type of modified Sgian Dubh was during the Crimean War of 1853 to 1856. Officers of the Highland Regiments commissioned these tools with corkscrews and hoof picks to help them with day-to-day camp life. A number of variations were seen thereafter up to and during the First World War, but the practice died out thereafter, when the battlefield kilt fell out of use with new forms of modern warfare.
The tools on the Officer sgian dubh have been updated to match the needs of the current user.
Hand made in Glasgow, Scotland, assembled in stainless steel with Indian ebony handle, supplied with leather sheath and presentation box.
