  1. Does anyone know of any connection with the surname McFall to any Scottish clan? I've not found much in my search.
  2. #everydaykt #1 - two questions today. "Should sporrans only be worn for more formal events, or all the time?" and " Is there a reason Utilikilts only sells the "switchback" design on their website and do you view it as a positive innovation in functionality of the modern style kilt?"

    Is this mic on?

    I know I've not promoted a lot lately, or even been around. Thanks to Amadan for reminding me of my first home.
  4. I am having a hell of a time finding a supplier of lapel-pin style pinbacks. I want a simple post with a locking clasp on the back. does anyone know where I can find these? I see them on many pins, but can't find thes post/clasps themselves online. here is the best pic I have so far of what I am looking for, the pinbacks on the kilt pin on the right.
  5. When looking at a sgain dubh, I highly suggest you save your hard-earned money and buy a quality sgain made by a reputable blade smith. If you are formally dressed, don't cheap out on a piece of mass-produced junk! You wouldn't wear a knock-off cheapie sporran with your hand-sewn heirloom-quality kilt, would you? I have been lucky in my sgains, having them made by many amazing blade smiths. My prized sgain is a custom-made blade from Sgains by Raptor. It is made of Red Ironbark which required special permits to obtain and a hand-made blade. I'm told the tree was about 2,000 years old. it is easily my favorite of all sgains I've ever had. It does not see much use as I know I can never replace it. It is just that amazing. Second in the image is a Damascus style blade, also by Raptor. It also has the heft and beauty of design as the blade previously described, and is #37. I love the simplicity of design which masks the strength of this blade. I do not recall who sent me the 3rd sgain, but it bears mention as the antler handle has petrified mammoth tusk as the blade. Another amazing sgain, but the blade is a little fragile so I rarely use this one. I have a few others, which I have not pictured as you can find cheap sgains all over the web, and I'll not get into those. Hope fully these examples of superior workmanship will help you see the value and beauty of a well-made sgain! Please share with others so they can see the beauty of a well made sgain!
