Celtic Daggers

Celtic daggers and Scottish daggers come in many distinctive styles, including the iconic sgian dubh and regimental dirk. Traditional sgian dubhs possess a short blade and make excellent additions to Highland dress. While originally worn as a concealed dagger, they were used for eating as well as defense. Historical dirks, by contrast, served as personal sidearms of Scottish Highland regiment officers with long blades for thrusting. Descending from the ballock dagger of the Middle Ages, Scottish dirks remain popular in modern times as ceremonial blades. At Buying a Sword, we carry a great selection of highland daggers that are perfect for collectors, re-enactors, and anyone who wants to honor their heritage. We offer a fine range of decorative daggers with ornate engraving and gems, as well as functional daggers crafted from Damascus and high carbon steel. Peruse our Celtic Daggers category to find the right historical blade for your needs.
