An original Scottish C.1900's Argyll & Sutherland Highlanders Skean Dubh Dagger.  These military dress daggers were normally kept in the officer's sock and tended to be worn in conjunction with a matching regimental dirk at the belt.  This is a military skean dubh style that was common in Scottish infantry regiments during the late-19th and early 20th Century.  The skean dubh became particularly popular with Scottish military regiments in the British Army during the 19th Century, especially after the Scottish Revivalism period in the early to mid-19th Century.  They are still worn by Scottish Highland officers in the British Army to this day.  With typical chequered bogwood grip and white metal regimental motif to the grip.  The hilt mounts are formed into a distinctive geometric pattern with a large pommel button.

White metal decorative mounts to skean dubh

White metal mounts to hilt and leather scabbard.  The blade with single fuller and grooved spine.  Blade with some age wear - is good to find this skean dubh with its original scabbard as many were lost over time.  Blade length is 3.75 inches (7.25 inches overall).
