From metal forging to leather work, all our products are sourced and crafted by our hands in our Scottish workshop. The blade is traditionally hand forged from high carbon steel in our outdoor workshop. Once forging is completed, the blade goes through a heat treating and tempering cycle to give a reliable but sharp edge, adding to the authentic Scottish Highland blacksmithing experience.

 

The handle has been hand crafted from Scottish whisky barrel complemented by reclaimed copper peen nut. The Oak has been hand carved in a spiral pattern to echo traditional Scottish knife design, creating a tactitle feel in your hand. The handle is hand fitted and treated with environmentally-friendly beeswax (from a local farm) to give a beautiful, long lasting, polish.

 

The Dirk comes with a traditionally tooled custom dark leather sheath which has been hand crafted for secure fit. Made from high quality UK Veg Tan leather.

 

As close to touching our past, without time travel (or Outlander).

 

What is a Dirk? Scottish Highland Dirks were originally used as an everyday multi-purpose tool and weapon. They supposedly evolved from Bollock Daggers but also can be seen much earlier, as you can see in the shape of the lobed handle. This type of 1700's Dirk, featured prominently in Outlander and current with the Jacobite Rebellion (1680s-1750s), is unique to Scotland. A gem in any collectors' hoard.
