Ballock Dagger

The Scottish Dirk was a direct descendent of the Medieval ballock dagger. The grip form began to change, probably sometime in the late 16th century, but soon developed a form that was purely Scottish. The later versions that are quite popular, are somewhat debased in form, and not the pure fighting weapon of the early version. And make no mistake about it, this dirk was a pure fighting knife, and unabashedly so. The blade was long and single-edged. Made to use alone, with a shield and sword, or just with a basket-hilt claymore. We have replicated an early version of the dirk, and Windlass Steelcrafts has done an excellent job in its forging and carving ...and the hardwood handle is carved with a chevron like pattern copied from an original of the same time period. For those with a serious interest in the Highlands, this is a must for any collection. This functional dagger comes complete with scabbard. CIRCA 1700.

G - Verified Buyer

"Looks great! Would be even better with some decorative enhancements on the blade. Otherwise solid."

V - Verified Buyer

"This dirk is gorgeous, I have one made of damascus folded steel that I thought was great until the Early Scottish Dirk from Reliks arrived. I am torn between, I should have had it sharpened, or It is better unsharpened [although the point is very pointy] for display and handling by visitors to our clan tent. I may sharpen it some day, but for now it is a great showpiece and very usable and safe to display with my broadsword and targe."
