Early Scottish Dirk Short Sword
 
c. 1550 A.D.
Traditionally, dirk short swords were made from broken battle swords; our version reproduces an early Scottish design. This style of dirk is a direct descendant of the Medieval ballock dagger from 1066 A.D. It wasn t until the late-16th century that the grip form began to change, evolving into a style that was purely Scottish. The blade was long and single-edged and could be used alone, with a shield and sword, or alongside a basket-hilt claymore. The hardwood handle is carved with a Celtic knot-like chevron pattern reproduced from an original of the same time period. The high-quality sword blade is of hand-forged high carbon steel, tempered for strength and meticulously polished to a superb finish. This is one of the strongest and finest swords available. Hand-crafted by the famed metalsmiths at Windlass Steelcrafts. Complete with a scabbard. Can be professionally sharpened for an additional fee. Please note that sharpened swords cannot be returned.

Overall: 21" Blade: 15"Lx1¾"W. 3/16" thick. 1 lb.
