I was very pleased when I received the sword. It was much better than I expected and will be pleased to display with my collection.
It is a wonderful sword. Keep up the good work!
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.
I have always wanted one of these swords. It is unique, steeped in history and beautiful in the hand.
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.
This sword is extremely well balanced and masterfully created. Very proud of wear this with a kilt!
