    Opinions Please on Scottish Dirk

    Hi resident experts,

    I have a friend who owns the Dirk I am about to post and she knows nothing about it.

    Could you please give your honest opinion on what you see.

    I have asked her to look for a silver hallmark and she is certain it is leather.

    Many thanks for taking your time to look.

    Chalky,
    Not an expert on dirks buy I would describe it as a mid 20th century civilian dress dirk.
    The mounts appear to be nickel rather than silver, there is black stain wearing off the handle so it’s not made of bog oak.
    The blade is not marked so that doesn’t help. You would need to ask a jeweller if the citrines are genuine or glass.
    Take it along to a local auction house to get a value.
    Ron.
