This style dirk is a direct descendant 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. Made to use alone, with a shield and sword, or just with a basket-hilt claymore. We have replicated an early version of the dirk. The hardwood handle is carved with a chevron like pattern copied from an original of the same time period. For those with a serious interest in the Highlands, this is a must for any collection. Includes scabbard.
    Can be personalized with 3 Initials (select at right)

    My first Dirk and it is a great. Craftsmanship is great. I would like more initials engraved because I have 6 initials PJAGSR Phillip Joseph Ander Gregory, Sr. I need to figure how to keep the dirk in the scabbard. Some type of tie down that lets me release it. Keep up the good work. Phil aka PapaG

    This is a well made dagger that I would really classify as a short sword. It is heavier and less nimble than the Primitive Dirk sold elsewhere in the catalog. The carving on the handle allows for a better grip. It is very nice looking and would look great mounted in a display.
