Overview


Circa 16th Century
A version of this magnificent blade is housed in the Royal Armories in Leeds. The countless clans throughout the highlands used swords of this caliber.

Our version of the Late Scottish broadsword has an intricate wire basket-hilt forming a heavy, protective guard. The grip is covered in natural ray skin for an excellent grip and then beautifully wire-wrapped. The high carbon steel blade has double fullers which have been lavishly etched with an intricate pattern. The sword comes with a matching black leather scabbard which has had its metal throat and tip decorated with matching engraving.

Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

Can be sharpened for additional fee.

Actually a copy of a 16th century sword
I saw a photo of the sword was copied from.  It was in the National Museum of Antiquities in Scotland and the sword was dated circa 1570.   The Windlass reproduction looks very much like it.  This is a HEAVY sword!  The hilt is so big I can get both of my long slender hands in it, (one on either side).  All of the pieces of the basket are very thick. The blade is well made and substantial.  The etchings on the blade are actually slightly cut into the blade, not just painted on.  I haven't cut anything yet but will once I sharpen it.  I am impressed!  If you get it you may want to check out Youtube's Matt Easton on Scholagladiatoria to learn exercises to strengthen your arm for a one handed sword.

Not as expected.
Only one complaint, I ordered and paid for it to be sharpened and it arrived unsharpened. They did send a return label to return it for sharpening, but wish it could have come as expected.

Beautiful Late Scottish Broadsword
This is a magnificent sword! The basket is large enough to fit my middle size hands when wearing a gauntlet. The basket is also fabulously detailed. Depending on how you count them, there are 30 odd welds in it. Balance is 5" above the basket as it should be and is intended to support cutting rather than thrusting. The etching and engraving are tops!
