A Victorian silver and bloodstone dirk kilt pin

A Victorian silver and bloodstone dirk kilt pin


An exceptional antique Victorian Kilt Pin modelled as a traditional dirk. The Scottish dirk has long been used to create kilt pins but at 9.5cm this is an extremely unusual length and becomes a highly visible piece on any Kilt. Bloodstone is used to represent the sheath and is set in an engraved silver mount with citrine stones used to decorate the tops of the dagger and the smaller accessories.

  • Additional Product Information

    There is no hallmarking which was not an unusual for the Victorian period.


    Scottish dirks are the traditional and ceremonial weapon of the Highland warrior, and are typically worn by officers, pipers and drummers of their regiments. They find their roots in the 16th century ballock or rondel dagger, and occupy a unique place in Highland culture and history.

  • Condition Notes

    In excellent condition throughout - the pin is tight and fastens well. The silver is free of any blemish.
