  • Regular price £103.00


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.

The Dirk developed on from the bollock dagger through the Dudgeon dagger to this simple early form.  The Scottish Dirk is characterised by a small barrel shaped grip with a stylised version of the bollock daggers' balls and a brass cap and impact plate and a long blade.  The pommel cap is perforated with a heart motif; again a classic detail of the time.

Overall length 49cm/19"

Blade length 38cm/15"

Grip length 7cm/2.75" (The hand grips down onto the 'balls')

 

Edge sharpness

Semi-Sharp is 'butter knife sharp'; it has a very fine flat on the edge

Sharp has been ground to give a reasonable cutting edge, but final honing, if required, is by the customer.
