17th/18th century Scottish dirk

17th/18th century Scottish dirk

19th Century Gambler's Dirks-decended from the 18th Century Naval Dirk (not to be confused with the single-edged Scottish Dirk), they were hidden in waistbands, boots, up sleeves and stuck into garters, a discreet way to protect one's winnings

The Scottish Dirk was a direct descendent of the Medieval ballock dagger. The grip form began to change, probably sometime in the late 16th century, but soon developed a form that was purely Scottish. The blade was long and single-edged. We have replicated an early version of the dirk, and Windlass Steelcrafts has done an excellent job in its forging and carving ...and the hardwood handle is carved with a chevron like pattern copied from an original of the same time period.
