FS: Regimental Scottish Dirk - $20

This is a dirk I got on ebay, so I'm unsure of the brand. It is fairly sharp and comes with a fork and knife that fit in the scabbard. The handle is plastic, so it is definitely more for show than...

Re: Are replica pipes comparable to the original?

Thanks for the input, everybody. I think I'm gonna swing for some MacRae's when I can afford it. Better to have the warranty that comes with the pipes too, I think.
