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 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.

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!!!

Fabulous!
This is a great sword! The blade is flawless. The basket hilt is of heavy brass which has been lightened by the traditional grooves. The piercing work on the hilt consists of simple round holes. No hearts, three leafed clover, thistles, etc. This fits the pattern of something as old as the 16th century. It is very hard to find one of these from that early time period.

Wonderfully Rendered Historical Piece
This sword displays beautifully.  The basket hilt is heavy and sturdy and the blade meets the high standards set by Windlass.   You can really see that this was more than a sword in battle but the basket hilt was also useful in striking an opponent in close quarters and the bottom of the handle is also designed as a skull crusher.   An extremely good rendering of a very versatile historical sword.   I wish that Museum Replicas would design a Baldric to go with it though so it can be worn in the Highland style with the belt over the shoulder.
