In Wellington since 1946
Welcome to McPhee's
Hand crafted in Helensburgh, West Scotland within sight of the bonny banks of Loch Lomond, this sgian dubh is made from rosewood, topped with a piece of antler and features the jacobite Rose.
In the years before the ’45, any signs of Jacobite allegiance were suppressed and Jacobites had to meet in secret. Because of this, a number of secret Jacobite symbols came into use. Known only to fellow Jacobites, they were a way of knowing who it was safe to talk to, or meet.
One of these symbols was The White Rose – Used on its own it symbolized the exiled King James but it could be present with one bud symbolizing Prince Charles or two symbolizing Prince Charles and his brother Henry.
Stainless steel blade with a shiny polished steel finish. Beautiful finish to the handle with a flattened side for ease of wear.
Each sgian dubh comes complete with a grade one leather sheath with celtic design and a black presentation box.
Please note as a natural product is being used to create these pieces there will be slight variations in colour and shape. No two will be identical. Each item is unique.
