Fully Functional Scottish Dirk; icon of Highlanders forged in the Himalayas...

 
Description of Scottish Dirk.
The KHHI’s 18th Century Dirk is perfect for anyone who wants an iconic weapon, similar to those used by the Highlanders of Scotland.  
khhi-dirk-Blade
 
The full tang 13” clip point blade comes with fullers, a thick spine and a sharpened swedge.  The sharp blade also has a reliably strong tip and a good chopping weight.
 
A brass guard and butt complete a carved wooden handle, designed to mimic the Celtic rope patterns found on Scottish dirks.  This ornately carved handle gives a non-slip grip as well as looking good enough to wear on formal occasions (Scottish weddings, Highland games etc).
 
Finally, the18th Century Scottish Dirk comes complete with a brown leather sheath, with a large loop that is suitable for kilt belts.  
 
Important things >> 
  • the blade has a strong spear tip (NOT a curved Bowie clip)
  • 13 inch blade, strong and sharp; a sharp spear tip with two fullers, the spine is thick, sharpened top edge near the tip is about 4-5 inch long
  • CARRY: the dirk is worn on the right hand side with the sharp edge facing to the back of the carrier when its in sheath
 
Review of Scottish Dirk by the buyer (orderer)
scottish-dirk-MakingWhen I first approached KHHI about the possibility of making a Scottish dirk, they were very friendly and helpful. We discussed the style, blade, and handle, and I received photos of every stage of the knife making process. Unlike many factory made knives, the Khukuri House produce traditionally crafted blades, made by a blacksmith and master weapons maker. This added a nice authenticity and a historical touch to the dirk. 
 
When I received the dirk, I was delighted to find the weapon felt light enough to control very easily and strong and sharp enough to take into battle (if I were back at Culloden).  I was really surprised at how nice the carved handle was, considering that Celtic designs are not a speciality of Nepalese knife makers.
 
I have no hesitation in recommending the KHHI 18th Century Scottish Dirk to anyone who wants to add to their traditional weapons collection, or to those who want a good quality dirk for a Scottish themed event.
