Box and certificate of authenticity

Originally, a sgian dubh was used for preparing and cutting fruit, meat, bread and cheese; as well as an essential tool for more general day-to-day uses such as cutting materials, hunting and protection. This accessory was therefore an indispensable and constant companion, and has now evolved to its place as a symbolic element in ceremonial Highland dress.
