Skene Tartan & Clan

The younger son of the chief of Clan Robertson managed to save the life of the king who was about to be set upon by a ravenous and possibly rabid wolf. Filled with patriotic brio, the young man removed the dagger from his sock (his Sgian-dubh) and slew the beast, saving the monarch. The king was, to put it mildly, chuffed to bits and so decided to reward the lad with a tract of land which the young man named after the dagger that had brought him such good fortune.
