Like many other cultures, the Scottish people were rather familiar with daggers. Indeed, these highland warriors almost seemed to place special emphasis on their short blades, and that is why Dark Knight Armoury has taken the time to acquire a nice collection of Scottish daggers and dirks, all for your viewing and pursuing pleasure. Typically when one things of a Scottish dagger, one of two blades are pictured. The Scottish dirk is descended from the medieval ballock dagger, although extensive use by the Scots eventually gave this blade a look that was decidedly all Scottish. The dirk was favored as a traditional and ceremonial sidearm of the Scottish Highland regiments, and it possesses a long, narrow blade that is ideally suited for heavy-handed stabs, although in a pinch, the dirk is also a great hunting and utility knife. The other typical Scottish knife is the sgian dubh, also known as the black knife. This little knife is a potential side-arm and self-defense weapon that is worn as a part of traditional Scottish Highland dress. It can typically be found tucked in the stocking, within easy reach. The Scots were big on multi-tasking and so their knives typically performed a lot of functions, but one must always remember that a Scottish dagger is still a dagger, which means it excels at stabbing and thus, makes a great secondary weapon. If you are looking to get in touch with your Scottish heritage, or if you just want to celebrate these wonderful little blades, then there is no better way to do so then with a Scottish Dagger from Dark Knight Armoury.
