The Scottish Dirk was the classic dagger of both the Highland and Lowland Scots from the early 17thC through to the modern day as a Regimental weapon and was originally a development of the older bollock dagger.
This Scottish Dirk is characterised by a solid, barrel shaped grip, usually wood or metal, in this case Bronze, with a twisted tang button and a long single edged blade. The pommel top is decorated with a flower pattern and the dagger comes with a simple double layer vegetable tanned leather sheath.
Please note that the ‘actual grip’ on dirks are always short and the hand is intended to partially cover the haunches.
