The Irish Dirk was primarily a thrusting weapon, designed for close-quarters combat. It was lightweight and easy to wield, making it an ideal choice for the fast-paced, hand-to-hand fighting style favored by the Vikings. The dagger could be used to deliver quick, deadly thrusts to an opponent's vital organs, and its narrow blade made it difficult to parry or deflect.
