Sales enquiries

The 11 3/4 inch blade is superbly etched for the entire length, both sides. As well as the logo of the Highland Light Infantry it has their battle honours up to and including Tel-el-Kebir (1882), so pre-Boer War battle honours, so there is a very good chance this dirk was worn by a piper piping the HLI into battle in the Boer War. Blade has some patina splotches towards the point. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt with the Queen's crown to the pommel and all the silver metal studs in place. The sheath with some age. The dirk sheathes and draws well.

These Mk1 fully etched with regimental motif bladed dirks are very rare. This one can be yours for £1000. Please quote reference number Q17. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0332-60x16x16 (0.861).
