The Scottish Dirk was a direct descendent of the Medieval ballock dagger. The grip form began to change, probably sometime in the late 16th century, but soon developed a form that was purely Scottish. For those with a serious interest in the Highlands, a Scottish dagger or Scottish dirk is a must for any collection. Scottish daggers have inscriptions on their ornate hilts and handles that are made of box wood. Scottish daggers are like a work of art but beware they are still a true dagger used for stabbing.
