This beautifully made Officers Dirk has been styled on surviving historical specimens of the late 18th century. The wooden hilt is hand carved with vigorous celtic knot work much in the style of the traditional early 18th century fighting dirks. A metal pommel cap and ferrule protect the wooden hilt against damage. The small fork and by-knife are carried in the metal mounted sheath side by side on the front, this fashion although popular in the earlier times was to set the practise which continued not only well into the next century, but is still an integral feature in regimental officers dirks today.
The Scabbard is made in hardwood and covered in black leather and perfectly stitched on the back. The metalwork on the scabbard and handle have grooved detailing. On the back of the scabbard there is a leather belt loop.

    Great Ornamental Piece
    Review by Krlly
    To get the basics out of the way, the order was processed quickly and the delivery was prompt so extremely happy with that.
    As for the dirk itself it certainly looks the part and is a hefty piece of kit. The knife and fork are very crude and can be no more than ornamental. As for the quality, it is overall very sturdy but there are some blemishes on the leather where the glue has oozed out from the metal attachments and not been completely cleaned away. In the same vain the metal on the end of the scabbard came off whilst I was unpacking it. It was easily reattached with some decent glue and I gave the whole thing a clean and protective coating and it looks really good. Although I am yet to try the dirk on with my kilt, overall I happy with the purchase. I would certainly recommend Southern Swords and will look to them again for similar purchases.

    Review by Love it.
    I ordered this Dirk as I needed one to complete my Highland no 1 dress. I chose it because the style was 18th century, a period I like.
    It was delivered less than 24 hours after ordering it. It was very well packed. And tracked all the way.
    But the Dirk itself, knife, fork and scabbard the whole ensemble it so well made. It's heavy duty. Absolutely beautiful. In fact, I love it. And with Highland dress, it's the business Well worth the money
