Scottish Daggers and Celtic Daggers

Like many other cultures, the Scots and the Celts were both 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 and Celtic daggers and dirks, all for your viewing and pursuing pleasure. Typically when one thinks 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. The other Scottish knife is the sgian dubh, also known as the black knife. Pronounced skean dhu, 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. Thanks to some shared history and culture between Scottish and Celtic styles, many dirks and sgian dubhs double over, and even feature touches of paired design, making them wonderfully suited either culture. If you are looking to get in touch with your heritage, or if you just want to celebrate the striking appeal of these wonderful blades, then you have come to the right place, because Dark Knight Armoury has plenty of Scottish and Celtic daggers to go around.
Black Sgian Dubh
