This example, with 9" blade, belongs to a group of daggers with similar blades and guards, decorated in silver as is this one, many of which bear Jacobite mottos. They have spatulate profile reeded bog oak grips. A very few, as this one are mounted as plug bayonets. The hilt is darkly grained bog oak with a silver ferrule and silver flower head disk at the top. The Jacobite Rebellion came at a time when the plug bayonet had reached its greatest popularity and this is the Scottish separatists rendition.
