EARLY SCOTTISH DIRK Early Scottish Dirk SH2363 by CAS Hanwei(SH2363) by CAS Hanwei
Hand forged from tough high-carbon steel by the finest craftsmen, this dirk is built for use. The threaded pommel is crafted from solid brass (unlike many other manufacturers who cast their fittings using a brittle zinc alloy). This Dirk is patterned after an early model (circa 1700) and is similar in form to earlier ballock knives. The blade is "backed" (single-edged and wedge-shaped in cross section). From the beautiful exotic hardwood handle to the expertly tempered blade, this full tang weapon is more than a wall hanger. Blade comes factory pre-sharpened and can be finely re-sharpened as needed.

The Scottish Dirk is a direct descendant of the medieval ballock dagger. The grip form began to change, probably sometime in the late 16th century, becoming purely Scottish. The 14 to 16 inch blade was single-edged, made to use alone, left-handed with a shield and sword, or just with a basket-hilt broadsword. The dirk was usually worn with the scabbard affixed to the belt just to the right of the Sporran. The Scots took on and beat the mightiest army in Europe in the early 1300s. Using the dirk and claymore, they continued to fight for 400 years with devastating effect.
