An original 19th Century Scottish Highland Dirk with large citrine to the pommel. The grip is made from staghorn and the hilt mounts are made from brass. The blade has typical Scottish Highland dirk attributes, including a scalloped edge and is double-edged towards the point. Both hilt and blade are solid with no movement. The pommel has a large, faceted pommel which still retains a great colour and sparkle - has not been dulled or scratched. A great piece when held in the hand.
In excellent condition throughout
Only markings that I can see are the letters, "OUR" near the blade forte - assume that it is the remains of a maker's name? Most of these Scottish dirks would have been made in either Glasgow or Edinburgh. In excellent condition throughout and a great addition to any collection of Scottish Highland dirks. Both hilt and blade are rock solid and with no movement. Blade length is 8.5 inches (14 inches overall).
