Riever Sgian Dubhs
Rievers...Those Border Clans that had a long tradition of "cattle lifting."
A right of passage for many a young man, and not particularly looked down upon.
A knife like these would have been appropriate for the "gentle" task of rieving cattle.

are strictly forbidden near the pasture at anytime. Day or Night!
Blade: About 3.5" 1085 steel
