Sold Item Notice

A "Mk 1" dirk is simply those that have the serrated / sawback back edge to the blade and fully etched blades including regimental badges. Being Black Watch (Royal Highlanders), these also have battle honours. With the Victorian crown to the pommel and battle honours up to nut not including the South African Boer War, this dirk likely accompany the pipes for the Royal Highlanders during that infamous war.

The superbly grey etched 12 inch blade has some age / wear and a spot of patina, but otherwise is in great condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / grip with all its studs is very good. The sheath / scabbard is aged but very good, and the dirk sheathes and draws well.

A must for any serious Scottish dirk collector; get it quick as these truly do not come onto the market very often. Under priced at just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference U83 (0926). Further / full sized images available upon request.
