British & Scottish Dirks & Fighting Knives
Scottish Childs Dress Dirk Made as a small dirk with no blade. Knife and fork are hilts only and non-removable. Late Victorian period and made during the Highland dress revival period as were most 19th and early 20th century dirks. This one is 9 1/2" overall and undoubtedly made for a child to attend dress functions with parents. Very interesting item and well made!
