I don't think this is an archaic sgian dubh. The notches don't look right and the finger places don't look right either. Post-Victorian sgian dubhs changed more to the curvature of the calf muscle. Plus with little patina on the bone, I would place this as late 20c to early 21c.

That being said, it is nice for what it is with true usage..
