Based on Originals: Circa 1650-1760 Scotland
These dirks were carved by hand and mounted on custom-made blades. They represent a range of dirk styles from the earliest examples of what may be identified as a truly Scottish style dirk circa 1650, on the left. Then a piece from the mid-18th century, that illustrates the last period with a functional dagger that is starting to show the design elements that will be the hallmarks of the dress daggers worn since the end of the 1700's. The dirk on the right shows the height of form and function, when the dirk was a working tool as well as showing the full development of the carved hilt circa 1700. These have all been sold.
