A Bonnie Blade!
Having Scottish blood, I had to have this Basket-Hilt Broadsword! The blade came as sharp as a razor, the basket is beautifully cut out, and the hilt is firmly connected to the blade. The flocked red basket liner and tassel set off the blued steel beautifully. Paired with a targe and dirk, it make quite an authentic and potent combination. The grip is covered in ray skin and wrapped with wire, and the scabbard is leather covered and well put together. I would proudly wear this at any Highland Games or Celtic Festival.
