Tall Dirk Kilt Pin

Tall dirk kilt pin in sterling silver, bloodstone and agate

$250.00

This tall dirk kilt pin is beautifully crafted in sterling silver with agate, bloodstone and citrine glass. The pin is hallmarked “Scotland Silver” without a maker’s mark, which was not uncommon for locally made sterling pieces of the Victorian era. It is in perfect condition and measures just over 3 inches tall.

There is often confusion on the difference between a claymore, a dirk and a sgian dubh. The claymore is a larger blade, usually carried in the hand as an offensive weapon. A dirk (sometimes simply referred to as a long-bladed dagger) is worn on the belt, ready for action. The traditional Scottish sgian dubh is a smaller blade most often kept in the wearer’s kilt hose (tall socks). It was used as a utility knife or a weapon of last resort.
