Cold Steel 88SD Scottish Dirk Sword 13" 1055 Carbon Steel Blade, Leather Scabbard
CS88SD: Scottish Dirk
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.
Our version is a modern replica that harkens back to an earlier form, when the dirk was a functioning tool and weapon. The 13" blade is forged to a hard spring temper from 1055 Carbon steel. It's 1-1/2" wide and comes fully sharpened and battle-ready, prepared to hew down any foe.
The attractive Rosewood 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.

Leather is known for its durability and traditional appeal. When compared to Kydex it is preferred for its silence when bumped against other objects, as well as blade retention.
An extremely tough steel with high carbon content and a hardness between 60-64RC, 1055 is best suited for high-impact and high-stress applications.
Provides a traditional, natural look and feel to a modern tool. Wood absorbs shock well and is popular in axe handles.
