The Highland Dirk, or Biodag, is a ceremonial weapon, today used for the most formal outfits, and by the officers, pipers and drummers of the Highland Regiment. The dirk was originally an all-purpose knife for everyday use by the Highlander, especially useful when hunting. Oaths were traditionally sworn on a Highlander's Dirk, and this led to the dirks adoption as a ceremonial sword on special occasions.
Size 48cm long, 4.5cm at its widest. Blade 30cm long. Thistle design along blade. Attachment for a 2.5inch Kilt Belt.
PLEASE NOTE YOU MUST BE AGED 18 AND OVER TO PURCHASE SGIAN DUBHS AND DIRKS. By purchasing a dirk from St Kilda Store, the buyer certifies that they are 18 years of age or older and that they may legally purchase the dirk.
