Paired Christmas Dirks

AJ Chalifoux

Recommended Posts

These two paired Scottish dirks were done as a personal project for Christmas presents. They went to my sister and her husband, who had their wedding in Scotland last year. The blades are 5160 steel with dramatic distal and profile taper. I don't think these typically had distal taper, but I decided to do something a little different.


One blade was forged by me, and the other was forged by my girlfriend as a fun couple's project. She also polished the blades while I worked on the hilts. The guards and pommels are solid brass, and the woods used are padauk and wenge.
