I would appreciate any information that \i can get about this Scottish dirk. My great grandmother used it as a door stop for many years to keep her bedroom door open during the day.

It is hard to be definitive from just the photos but it appears to be a 19th or early 20th c. regimental dirk. The basket weave pattern on the grips and the metal studs at the intersection of the patterns are a common feature of those knives as is the exaggerated shape. There was a metal fitting on the lower end of the grip, where it meets the blade, which is missing. Can you see any markings on the blade or elsewhere on the dirk? Is there a sheath?
