The Scottish Dirk that most knife enthusiasts are familiar with these days is, more or less, a piece of rubbish;—a prop—a costume accessory for stage and screen. It's 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. This is the perfect companion piece to complete your Highland ensemble, a real fighting dirk, instead of a useless piece of metal.
