More than a rib tickler!
Really nice, well made.  It would be very effective. Adding it to the collection on a couple levels: The Scottish side, I may be a long lost descendant of Clan Gunn associates, but blade wise, the triangle cross section is really cool. Very strong could punch its way into the vitals of any invading Englishmen!! Just kidding...

Primitive Scottish Dirk- Very nice !
Fit and finish of the Dirk are high quality. The well polished shows no metal imperfections to finish. Blood groove is well defined in depth of blade. Sharping service produced a nice even very sharp edge which requires your undivided attention while handling. Scabbard fit is tight so removal requires a firm pull. There is no slip when dirk I’m in place. The leather is thick, well formed, and firm to retain shape. I sprayed leather dressing inside to prevent the oiled blade from picking up very tiny pieces of leather from the internal unfinished leather of the sheath. The metal tip and collar are well attached with a nice brush polished finish. I am very pleased with this purchase and now will order the more expensive Scottish basket claymore based on the quality of workmanship

I knew I was going to like this dagger as soon as I picked it up. It is light and very nimble, and it is very well made. This dagger is almost like a short sword. This would be a great weapon for self defense if you can deal with the length.
