Scottish Dirk with leather scabbard
The Scottish Dirk that most knife enthusiasts are familiar with these days is, more or less, a piece of rubbish - a prop or costume accessory for stage and screen. It is declined into a knife-like object that people hang above their mantles or on the walls of dimly lit, wood-paneled dens.
Cold Steel®'s version is a modern replica that harkens back to an earlier form, when the dirk was a functioning tool and weapon. The 13 in. blade is forged to a hard spring temper from 1055 high carbon steel. It's 1.5 in. wide and comes fully sharpened and ready for combat, prepared to hew down any foe. The attractive Malaysian sal wood handle is capped with a contrasting blued-steel guard, bolster and disc-shaped pommel, and an handsome leather scabbard completes the package. The scabbard features an extra wide belt loop with a blued-steel throat and chape.
This is the perfect companion piece to complete your Highland ensemble, a real fighting dirk, instead of a useless piece of metal.
1055 High Carbon Steel
The carbon content and lean alloy of this shallow hardening steel make this a very sturdy material that avoids a lot of the brittleness commonly associated with higher carbon materials. Particularly suited to blades requiring impact resistance, it's often seen in large fixed blades and swords.
