Although I have studied what I can before getting a dirk, I am quite ignorant in many many areas.

Government hilts? Never heard of them. Please elaborate! :D

Have to admit, not seen one like this. However, I doubt it is for practice. The workmanship is to nice to be torn up, and besides, the inlays would pop out upon impact.

Very nice.

Well to answer your question, the initials on the gorget are "JML" I think for "J McLeod" on the backside.

Oh Jim, I was excited to be able to get this. I am generally not interested in any Scottish dirk past 1800 due to the transformation of the hilt.

Rifle battalion - not thought of that. The hard...

Scottish Late 18th Century Blade - Tempered?

I am straightening a Scottish dirk from the late 18th century and was wondering if the blades from this period were tempered.

Does any one know?

Yeah I like this one too. Unusual to have this type of wood carving like this. Great twist core and that bronze and silver weaving, amazing. That mansala intrigues me. Too bad it was cut down.
