This beautifully made Officers Dirk has been styled on surviving historical specimens of the late 19th century. The natural finish hard wood hilt has been hand carved in a basket weave pattern and decorated with metal nails, as opposed to the more Celtic styled hilts of the previous century. The brass metal pommel cap and ferrule protect the wooden hilt against damage. The small fork and by-knife are carried one above the other in the metal mounted sheath. This practise was common on Dirks of quality in the previous century. However earlier dirks tended to have the small knives side by side. This Dirk is the ultimate development from the earlier fighting and dress Dirks of the 18th century and is still in use today The Scabbard is made in hardwood and covered in brown leather and perfectly stitched on the back. The brass metalwork on the scabbard and handle have grooved detailing. On the back of the scabbard there is a leather belt loop.
