Overview


Circa 1550

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

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.

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.
