This Scottish Dirk version is a modern replica that harkens back to an earlier form, when the dirk was a functioning tool and weapon. The blade is forged to a hard spring temper from 1055 Carbon steel. It comes combat sharp and battle-ready, prepared to hew down any foe. The attractive black 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.

Happy Scot
Excellent, a sharper edge could have been accomplished, but I certainly am not disappointed.  This was a smooth transaction.  Thanks,  I will return for more purchases.

Good for show, good for go!
I was only slightly disappointed at the unusually long time I had to wait between ordering and receiving my dirk.  However, when I got it out and cleaned the creosote off of it and found it to be razor sharp, I was well-pleased.  It looks fancy enough to be a centerpiece for my Scottish-American Military Society uniform, yet has a wonderful balance if I have to fall back on it in a tactical situation.  I have to grin, as I have a background in fencing and SCA free-style sword fighting (rapier and flex-dagger), so I should be right at home with dirk and sgian dubh, both of which are razor sharp from Atlanta Cutlery.  Thanks, guys!  Now I know why no one makes fun of a man wearing a kilt!

Totally outstanding! Now this is a dagger/short sword. It is well made and worth every penny that I paid for it.
