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 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.
