Scottish Dirk, made by Cold Steel
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 inch blade is forged to a hard spring temper from 1055 Carbon steel. Its 1 ½ inch 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 a 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.
