A Scottish dirk is much more than a clothing accessory. The dirk is a piece of history. Around the 16th century it was developed from the medieval kidney dagger. The dirk was used during the great Clan wars in Scotland, it was worn during the Jacobite risings and was eventually integrated together with many Scottish regiments in the British army and in the Scottish costume.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
