I recently acquired what I think is a Del Tin Basket weave hilt Scottish Dirk, Blade Length 13" Overall Length 18 7/8" Blade Width @ guard 1 1/2" with a “running wolf” stamped on the blade. Online searches indicate this may have been originally sold by Museum Replicas as a DT #6 many years ago.

Any info as to when this was made, historical period represented and any original marketing description would be most appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

Hmm...When was this dirk made? I may not be an expert on dirks but we better ask someone who knows about this.

Certainly looks like this one. If so it;s been discontinued for a long time.

Thanks. I'm sure it's the same. Only found two references (both dated) online. Hoping to see some older reference as to what period dirk this supposed to resemble, historical context, etc.

Very early in the life of the company, MR sold some Del Tin products and this dirk happens to be one of them.
