This Dirk is patterned after an early model (circa 1700) and is similar in form to earlier ballock knives. While only the wealthy could afford the distinctive two handed Scottish Claymore, almost every Highlander owned a Dirk, and they carried them everywhere.

If in Japan the katana was the soul of the Samurai, in Scotland the dirk was the heart of the Highlander. In many warrior cultures oaths were sworn on one's sword. Among the Gael, however, binding oaths with the force of a geas (involving dire supernatural penalties for breaking such an oath) were sworn on one's dirk.

-Seago, Dale "The Methods and Fighting Methods of the Highland Scots

The blade is “backed” (single-edged and wedge-shaped in cross section). The ever- popular Dirk from Paul Chen is strikingly authentic, its clean lines and carved hardwoord hilt making it a clansman re-enactor favorite.
