SCOTTISH HIGHLAND DIRK Scottish Highland Dirk KE8008 Made in China(KE8008) by CHINA
The wearing of a dirk, although not necessary, is generally carried in the loop on the kilt, at the waist, made for the dirk. The dirk was usually worn with the scabbard affixed to the belt just to the right of the Sporran. This Scottish Dirk features an 11 inch blade of 440 Stainless Steel with handle styling of a traditional design with faux jeweled crown pommel. The design stylings coordinate with the cast metal fittings of the leather covered scabbard. The Dirk measures 16 3/4" overall and sports a sharp one edged blade with fullers on both sides. A beautiful and affordably priced gift for groomsmen or participants of any Scottish or medieval wedding or ceremonial event that welcomes a scottish flair.

KE8008 Scottish Dirk
As the musket and bayonet grew in popularity many regimental military budgets were stretched thin. The dirk was soon dropped from the weapons gear of the rank and file soldier, though officers still carried them, more as status symbols than weapons of war. As Dirk designs evolved, fancier fittings for both grip and scabbard appeared, often of silver, became even more common after 1800 and the decorations showed direct correlations to silverware of the day. By-knives and forks were similarly decorated. These extra implements began to feature cairngorms and other precious stones on their pommels, a feature that found its way to the pommel of the dirk itself.   Related Items
