Sgian Dubh Sgian Dubh - Snakewoody handle

Snakewood (Brosimum guianense or Speckled Letter) is a precious Guyanese wood of the Moraceae family. Its reddish-brown tiger wood is very dense (it does not float) and can be reminiscent of snake skin patterns. This is why it is called Snakewood in English and Schlangenholz in German. However, it should not be confused with Guiana serpent wood, which is less dense.

Le Sgian Dubh, couteau identitaire écossais, est indispensable à la parure du kilt. Sa silhouette épurée, en ellipse, traduit son élégance et sa simplicité.
