CS88SD: Scottish Dirk
Cold Steel
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.

Pros: Handle Material, Finish, Blade Material, Sheath/Scabbard
Cons: None
Beautiful blade and handle
I like the old style look and it feels great in the hand. I only purchased the dirk for collection reason, and as such have not used it for hard task. I carry it as a defense weapon when I do carry it. Was disappointed that the blade wasn't razor sharp out of the box. Would not shave hair.

Not what it says it is. Not bad. Not good. Sheath and handle are cheap.

Authentic Dirk
Another excellent design by Cold Steel. This is a fighting weapon excellent for home defense or to add to a Highland ensemble. Blade did arrive a little dull and dirty (typical when sourced from India) but with a little work the 1055 steel can become razor sharp as well as shiny. (This is why I gave this product 4 stars instead of 5) Well balanced, solidly made, true to the Highland warrior roots. Another fine product from Cold Steel!
