    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"
    • Blade: 32-1⁄2" long, 1-3⁄4" wide, 3⁄16" thick
    • Wt: 3 lbs/14 oz
    Can be personalized with 3 Initials (select below left).

    This sword is well balanced and masterfully created. I have always wanted one of these, and I am very pleased with it. I wear it with a kilt using the three forked belt for rapiers & swords; item#: 200308; and have added some long red tassels to the pommel, as with some swords from this style/period.

    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.

    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.
