Sgian-dubh

The sgian-dubh Scottish Gaelic pronunciation: [s̪kʲɪnˈt̪uh]) is a small, singled-edged knife worn as part of traditional Scottish Highland dress along with the kilt. It is worn 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 right leg, but can also be worn on the left, depending on whether the wearer is right or left-handed.
