The 11 3/4 inch blade (12 inches if you include the section hidden by the hilt's ferrule) is in very good condition, some patina and wear but not much, and firm in the hilt. The Scottish weave design grip / hilt in good order with all the steel pins present. The leather and brass sheath is aged but sound condition; the brass chape is missing. The dirk sheathes and draws well.

A well above average example. Well priced, £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AF55 (1131). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
