    Hanwei Dirk I recently acquired one of these from another retailer, I was very satisfied with it but there were a few cons.

    The sheath it comes with is real leath but the belt loop attachment point was only held on by some thread (not much) I would’ve liked rivets instead for reliability but I understand why they went with thread.

    The edge is moderately thick, more of a chopping edge than a cutting edge, it had some light rusting from the retailer but it came out easy.

    The handle is very well assembled, just like everything else.

    I would recommend this as a side peice to their claymore or broad/back swords.

    Hanwei Dirk The dirk looks real good. But the hilt is much too long to hold in-hand as a Scottish dirk should be held. The sheath that came with mine looks goods and is well constructed, but is useless, as the dirk will not fit into it, so the dirk easily falls out. Useless. I am very disappointed

    My good man “Jim”… I owned this very dagger several years ago, and really liked it. The edge is easily sharpened and you can dress up the grip with some wood-burning and small steel tacks. Yes, the sheath is a bit lacking and doesn’t hold the blade very well. Just do as I did and put a length of cord through the belt-loop and tie it around the grip…problem solved. Use a slip-knot and it is super fast to get free of the sheath. I may have to get another one now.

    I bought this blade last summer, as a replacement for another dirk that had been stolen from me. I was looking for something a bit more historical than my previous blade. I was looking for a blade that kept the original usage of the dirk in mind. This dirk does not disappoint. I paid extra for sharpening, and will have to reprofile the edge, as there is almost no bevel (not that the edge is not sharp, but more on that later). There are some issues with this dirk, mainly the thickness of the handle. Historically, dirks were gripped in the same hand as the target. The thickness of the handle does not allow for that. The second issue is with the sheath. While well made, it simply does not hold the dirk properly. A few drops of gorilla glue will fix the connexion between the sheath proper and the belt loop. As for the sharpness…as stated before, I paid extra for sharpening. Sharpness is more than satisfactory. I filled several two liter soda bottles with water and was able to cut straight through most of them. After some practice, I was able to cut some of the bottles multiple times, without the bottles moving. My only issue with the edge is the need for me to reprofile it in order to keep it sharp. Overall, this is a fine example of a Jacobite period dirk.
