    This Scottish basket-hilt Claymore is the equal to any raised by clansmen as they overran the English at the Battle of Falkirk on Jan. 17th, 1746. The pierced basket-hilt is a faithful reproduction of one found on the Culloden Moor. The fully tempered high carbon steel blade is of the typical fullered, double-edge, broadsword pattern of the 1500's - 1800's. The basket also has a rich red cloth liner and a scabbard is included. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®. Can be sharpened for additional fee.
    • Overall: 39-1⁄2"

    This is a beautiful piece and quite well made. I had mine sharpened and it is truly a fearsome weapon and one of my favorites.

    Claymore, broadsword - I don't care. Both words sound great to me!! I have six swords from this company, and they are REAL!! No fake pot metal, stainless steel or the like. The Scotts of the 1800's had no steel like this! Get yours sharpened, they do a great job! And get the "rust blocker", It works!!!

    This sword looks absolutly smashing and ones like them can be seen in portraits of Scottish clansmen of the period described. The term "Claymore" comes from the combination of two Gaelic words: CLAIDHEAMH which means "sword" and MÒR which means "big, great, large (you get the idea). The gaelic for broad is "leathann" and for two handed is "dà-làimh". It's tough for those who don't speak Gaelic to pronounce many Gaelic words, hence the term "Claymore"!! I look forward to owning one of these someday to complete my kilt outfit.

    Actually... this is a Basket Hilt Claymore. But you are also correct in calling it a "basket hilt broadsword". The name "Claymore" was given to these types of swords during the beginning of the 18-century, many years after the usage of the great two-handed swords that one thinks of these days when hearing the term “Claymore”. The two-handed swords were never called Claymores that is a modern misconception.

    This is a beautiful and very well put together sword. However, it is not a claymore. this is a common mistake, but it is simply called a basket hilt broadsword.
