Sales enquiries

For some reason, most of the marks to the reverse of the sheath have been gouged out; whether this was intentional or by accident is unclear. But the silver mark for Robert Allison & Son is clear, plus we conducted a silver acid test on both worn and unworn sections of the back of the hilt, and they both showed dark red for Stirling Silver (see images below), so this dirk is possibly true silver mounted rather than plated, but our price is based on it being quality plated silver.

The 10 3/4 inch stainless steel blade, engraved to Robert Allison & Son, Glasgow, is in very good condition, a little scratching towards the point, and firm in the hilt. The hilt and accompanying knife and fork with glass citrine inserts. The piper's name marked to the middle sheath band reverse. Overall very good. Plated or not, this is a very high quality dirk and well worth £750. Item reference Q97. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0459-61x11x11 (0.818).
