Tom Duffy Dirks

By Tom Duffy of Scotland

These dirks are one of a kind, hand made by Tom Duffy.  These are premier collectors’ pieces as Tom is no longer making new dirks due to health reasons.  THERE IS A VERY LIMITED SUPPLY!!

We are pleased to announce that there are five (5) new Tom Duffy dirks now here for you to view!

 Note: Dirk #2 would be classed as left-handed in the U.S.  Mr. Duffy, the dirk maker, states 

“The dirk was carried on the right side and the sword on the left since the Scots fought with the dirk and a sword. They would draw the dirk with the left hand from their right side making it a left-handed dirk.”  

 All sterling silver dirks have Edinburgh Hall Marks. All grips are of African hardwood.  

Here's a glowing report from a recent buyer:


I just had to drop you this short missive to tell you just how delighted I am with the quality of the two dirks that I have just purchased from you. The photographs did not do them justice and your total honesty and frankness in explaining the slight flaws that have developed over time as they were in your care was very refreshing.

I look forward to receiving the photographs of Tom's Sgian Dubhs that will match my new dirks. If you also have any with genuine stag horn hilts, please send also...my colleague wants one of those.

Many thanks again for your chat and the quality of your merchandise.

From one Scot to another.   John Ross Stewart
