    The Scottish Dirk that most knife enthusiasts are familiar with these days is, more or less, a piece of rubbish— a prop—a costume accessory for stage and screen. It's declined into a "knife like object" that people hang above their mantles or on the walls of dimly lit, wood-paneled dens.

    Our version is a modern replica that harkens back to an earlier form, when the dirk was a functioning tool and weapon. The 13" blade is forged to a hard spring temper from 1055 Carbon steel. It's 1 1/2" wide and comes combat sharp and battle-ready, prepared to hew down any foe.

    The attractive Rosewood handle is capped with a contrasting blued-steel guard, bolster and disc-shaped pommel, and an handsome leather scabbard completes the package. The scabbard features an extra wide belt loop with a blued-steel throat and chape. This is the perfect companion piece to complete your Highland ensemble, a real fighting dirk, instead of a useless piece of metal.

    Best blade I ever had feels really good in my hands my only regret is not getting it sooner

    This blade has a more natural feel to me than any other weapon I've ever held, like a true extension of your own arm. The handle and adornments are absolutely beautiful, and offer a strong and sure grip. With a very fine point-of-balance as well (I estimate just over .5" from the blade hilt) it offers superior control. The first thing i did after receiving and "feeling out" the weapon, was order a second. If my money allowed, I'd keep a dozen on principal alone. Well suited for either a fine second-hand weapon, or a lightning fast pair of ambidextrous "short swords." In my opinion, they would have been a much favored blade of any cutthroat, rogue, or assassin.
