Developed during the later half of the 17th century the Scottish dirk has become synonymous with Highland culture. They further gained popularity with the Jacobite uprisings, and have developed into a thing of Beauty. They were often adorned with silver fittings and the hilts set with cairngorn stones. The Regimental Dirk, with its integral knife and fork set, was worn from the mid-19th century onwards.
This Regimental Dirk features a 11 1/2″ double edged stainless steel blade fileworked in the popular scalloped pattern. The grip is carved in the customary basket-weave pattern and surmounted by the traditional “cairngorm” (amber on the KH1229, amethyst on the KH1045). A suspension loop is provided on the scabbard. Both the companion knife and fork feature stainless steel blade and tines. This would make a nice addition to your highland dress at a fraction of the cost of an antique!
