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.
Cold Steel's 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 1050 high carbon steel. It's 1 1/2" wide and comes fully sharpened 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.
