The Generation 2/Legacy Arms Templar Companion Dagger -Designed by Bruce Brookhart matches the Templar Sword.

The Gen 2/Legacy Arms Scottish Dirk's grip is made from a 1 piece solid wood handle hand carved with a twisted pattern and finished with mild steel accents. The blade is made from 5160 tempered carbon steel with a full tang. The scabbard is wood wrapped in black leather.

The early Scottish dirk was a direct descendant of the medieval ballock dagger. The grip form began to change, probably sometime in the 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 of this dirk is hand forged from 5160 carbon steel and hand tempered.  The blade is then securely peened onto the pommel.  The contoured handle is solid carved wood with a spiral pattern for a solid grip under demanding conditions. This dagger also includes a wood scabbard wrapped in leather.

Legacy Arms, formerly known as Generation 2, still leads the way in the affordable sword market creating tough, well made items for the Medieval Sword enthusiast. All blades are selectively tempered 5160 steel with a robust apple-seed edge. The tempering is designed to provide a harder edge and softer, shock resistant core so that the sword will bend or deform rather than break in the heat of combat and is faithful to many historical examples.
The hilt construction is typically in steel (passing the magnet test) unless otherwise noted and the grips are leather over wood. The tangs are peened over the pommel the traditional way for maximum overall strength. The fit and finish of these swords from Legacy Arms is quite impressive, and would be at twice the price! Made with pride in the Philippines using anvil, fire and good old muscle power.

The description of this blade as a pure fighting knife is not an exaggeration.

This blade was purchased for me as a gift so I didn’t have any expectations going in.

The dirk has a heft to it similar to a sword. In fact I could see an argument being made about this being close to a short sword. This isn’t a utility knife there’s only one purpose for this blade and it doesn’t take much to unleash it.

The handle grooves are comfortable in the hand and the handle width is pretty wide so for those of you with big mitts will find a good match here. The pommel has a nice flat bottom for thumping.

The blade comes with a semi ground bevel, ready to take that perfect sharp edge. The cutting edge is the full length of the blade and then another 3” down the spine if you are so inclined. This blade doesn’t mess around.

I happened to have a watermelon handy, and to the delight of my kids, I halved it in one medium swing (after sharpening.) Pretty good for a knife.

They have it billed as a companion weapon but in the right hands I think this dirk would do just fine by itself. Good stuff.
