SCOTTISH DIRK (88SD) 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 battle-ready version made by Cold Steel 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 11/2" 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 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.

THE SCOTTISH DIRK
The wearing of a dirk, although not necessary, is generally carried in the loop on the kilt, at the waist, made for the dirk. Over time, several legends have grown up about the Scottish Dirk. One legend states that like the Sgian Dubh and the Gurkha kukri, the Dirk is never to be drawn for trivial or mundane purposes and must taste blood before it can be resheathed, even if the user must nick his own finger.
