  1. 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!
  2. What is your favorite kilt accessory? is it a custom or special sporran? is it a sgain you found or had made? is it something else? I am torn between two. I have a custom BOTK sporran by Wyvern Leather Works and a custom sgain made from a 2000-year olf australian iron bark tree and hand-made blade from Raptor. what is your favorite kilt accessory?

    Kiltology #512 - stalls

    For those of you who do not wear the kilt, we kilt-wearing folks fight a battle every day...in the bathroom. When trying to use the bathroom, there are many ways. hike up the kilt, hold it around you as you sit,take it off...and many others. here is something I figured that makes using a public restroom a piece of cake. for this to work, said restroom needs to have a coat hook. step 1: hang sporran from said hook step 2. place kilt belt over hook, it will fold over the hook well enough unless it is one of those really tiny ones. step 3: hang kilt over belt on hook. see caveat on step 2 before doing this. this method enables the kilt wearer to use the bathroom unhindered while keeping the kilt free from whatever is on the floor and from falling into the abyss of the bowl. Be Strong. Put a Kilt ON. *****do not repost without a link to this page***** Get your own copy of Kiltology here! www.amazon.com

    My Goal

    Over the years, I have had all manner of different ideas of what I wanted to do with this kilt idea of mine. as you can tell, it is still in flux.

    Kiltology #511 - Pheonix

    The story of the pheonix is well known, rising from the ashes of your previous incarnation stronger and better than before, and has been applied to the rebirth of the Brotherhood of the KIlt a few times in the past month or so. I don't know, I wasn't there, but I am pretty sure my kilt would be burned to hell if I tried that, not to mention the opening line to "The Christmas Song" being sung somewhere. We are not rising from the ashes, we were never burned down. We are simply a giant who took a prolonged nap. Be Strong.

  15. In the past few weeks I have heard some very odd comments regarding my kilt. I have been called "awesome", "cool", "retro" and a few other fairly normal things. One guy said "that guy is wearing a camo skirt. That is so gangsta". I'm not sure what he meant by that, but I'll take it as a compliment. The kilt in question was a vietnam-era jungle camo UT Kilt.

    Don't be afraid to be "that guy" at work. be strong. put a kilt on.
  17. In hindsight I believe there is no sillier sight than a kiltie working a plunger. Ever seen the shake weight commercials? imagine that, soaking wet staring a bathroom sink down. Not fun. *****do not repost without a link to this page***** Get your own copy of Kiltology here! www.amazon.com
  18. I have often wondered why it is windy outside almost every day I am kilted. I also wondered why it happens more when I spend some time putting together what I am wearing and not just throwing on the first kilt I find. I realized what it is this morning. A good strong wind is Mother Nature's way of saying "Nice Kilt". *****do not repost without a link to this page***** Get your own copy of Kiltology here! www.amazon.com

    Kiltology #507 - Bravado

    Since my return to the snowy white north, I have been asked repeatedly why I am not kilted all the time. As most of the connected world knows, there has been record snowfall in New England totalling over 9 feet this winter. For those who don't wear the kilt, dragging one's bits and pieces around in really deep snow is not something I suggest. Can you imagine this senario playing out at the local emergency room? The smart kilt wearer knows that bravado must give way to common sense in the blustery winter months to prevent the above senario.

    Kiltology #504 - Courage

    Courage is a wonderful thing. It is the ability to tell your fears and anxieties to go play in traffic while you lead an awesome life. Courage is what you have when you strap on a kilt and wear it as you see fit, where you want and ignore the comments and negativity that can sometime follow a man in a kilt. Courage is being yourself, living your life the way you want to. Courage is being kilted.
  21. Within every kiltie, there are two men fighting for who will be the one in charge...in constant conflict with each other. The first is what everyone sees, the confident kilt-wearing man. With a certain alure, mystery and strength about him. People ask him question becuase he looks like he knows the answer, no matter what the question is. Lasses want to know him, both personally and biblically. Men want to be him, to know the freedom and joy that is wearing a kilt. He tends to exude confidence and the ability to handle pretty much everything. He has an obvious and fierce loyalty to his family and bretheren, and a Santa Clause-like joviality and zest for life. This is one of the men living within him. The other man is the side that is not easily seen and less often show publically. It is the teddy bear that lives within the kiltie. His close friends and famly know he is a pushover when his children or other children give him 'that look' and start giggling. Puppies kisses and babies make him smile on the inside. He is tender and caring, but this side is usually very far from the surface and at odds with his other self at all times. This is the othe man living within the kiltie. Some kilties handle this conflict with ease and venture between each as the time arises, others drift towards one side or the other depending on his personality, experience and circumstances. Regardless of what side of the spectrum of kilties one may live on...rest assured he is the one person you want on your side, especially when there is fun to be had or trouble that needs tending to. *****do not repost this without a link back to this page*****
  22. When deciding on what kilt to wear to work ( I sit in front of a computer for eons at a time ) I have opted to wear a modern utility-style kilt almost exclusively. here is why. 1. Far less fabric to manage when sitting for long periods of time 2. not as much of a heat trap 3. Sewn-down pleats are far easier to manage 4. They are FAR less expensive for a decent utility kilt as opposed to a good tartan kilt 5. No sporran to deal with 6. no massive buckle to mess with 7. you can chuck it in the wash if you spill lunch on it 8. modesty snaps on some for when you swivel around rapidly 9. FAR easier to repair if a seam pops ( more to come as I think of them ) *****do not repost without a link to this page***** Get your own copy of Kiltology here! http://www.kiltology.com

    Kiltology #496 - Sewing

    If you happen upon a kilted lad who is sewing his damaged kilt, please let the poor lad to his work and be on your way.. He is trying quite diligently to repair his clothes so he can avoid being taken off to the stocks for public nudity. *****do not repost without a link to this page***** Get your own copy of Kiltology here! http://www.kiltology.com
