This Scottish Dirk's grip is made from a one piece solid handle hand carved to look like twisted wood, with mild steel accents. The blade is made from 5160 tempered carbon steel with a full tang. The scabbard is wood wrapped in black leather.
The early Scottish dirk was a direct descendant of the medieval ballock dagger. The grip form began to change, probably sometime in the 16th century, but soon developed a form that was purely Scottish. This dirk was a pure fighting knife, and unabashedly so.
