I have yet to photograph the sheath... And I still need to take a detail shot of the pommel... a very nice feature of this knife.

Looking forward to comments and feedback...

Spectacular! Glad to see another smith taking up the challenge of creating high quality Scottish dirks. Hope I can afford to commission my own piece from you soon. Happy

Thanks a lot everybody. I've gone through several phases of my work.. and the dirk seems to just sit right with me. Now I wish I could get going on those basket hilts.

I hope you keep pursing this niche. It seems to be a great fit. The details and texture found in this type of work marry very nicely to your aesthetics. The finished product really speaks to me.
