I added and fixed a little to make it fit better into the continuum. It's still a bit sparse, so let me know if I need to add or amend anything else.

You are quite correct with the name, because thats exactly how it came about. I tried to introduce a real scottish blade in. I discovered that they do not in fact have a cross-tree. I did not know which tribe it would be best to thrust upon considering I have only read the most basic lore of the place. This was a trial run. A cross-tree by the way is the guard that comes away from where the blade and handle meet on a sword or dagger. The fighting style was vague in that it is very multi-purpose and historians are unsure of the exact form or have too many conflicting ways to use it. It was used as an eating utensil because in medieval times most ate with their knives of daggers at a table as forks and silverware were too expensive, only the rich having them. I will try to learn more before I elaborate and correct the blade. It is made of Iron, steel, or cut down swords. It is in it's most basic Idea a long flat V edged dagger. From description it was also used as a throwing weapon at times, and all blades and swords tried to achieve some sort of balance for ease of use, otherwise momentum and leverage would be shot and uncontrollable. Any other ideas on how to integrate would be nice, and I will strive to fix what I can.

I was told to introduce myself so here I am! I heard about this site from an acquaintance from another site and decided to give a try and see how it worked. I am an amateur writer, meaning poet, songwriter, story weaver, and all that without getting money or fame.

A bladed melee weapon twice as long as the average dagger, and half as long as a sword. Generally has a minimal cross-guard to guard the hand and sometimes a pommel to provide counter weight for balance and throwing.Usually a straight V-point double-edged blade. Made of iron or steel if available, usually a simple metal handle wrapped with leather or other material for grip. Occasionally decorated with simple designs for ceremonial use.

It is not a common weapon, but easily forged or made from broken weapons. It is used as formal wear in some parts or an eating utensil in others.

Fighting Style
It is a middling weapon that can be used to fence or guard against swords. It is also short enough to not be unwieldy against daggers or shorter blades. It can be thrown if properly balanced, and is utilitarian in defense and against uncommon weapons. It is commonly used with buckler-style shields in combat, both as a primary weapon and a shield-hand weapon with point down.

Developed by the northern Orc tribes as an easy to make and functional weapon. Used by Gob-Orcs and the Ashz-Oc among others. Was also used as an eating utensil in some parts.
