This kilt pin is made of real deer antler that has been collected by "shed hunting". Meaning that the antler is only found from when a deer sheds them in the late winter to early spring. This pin measures at 2 and 3/4 inches in length. Made in Scotland.
The kilt pin is a very attractive part of the outfit. The pin is worn on the right side of the kilt, about an inch or so from the edge of the fringe. It should sit just under level with the middle of the sporran and squarely in the pattern of the tartan. The pin should only be pushed through the front apron of the kilt. Pinning it to both layers prohibits the kilt from moving when you walk. Secondary kilt pins aren't common, but can be worn above the primary pin.
