Scottish Claymore Sword

  • Scottish Claymore Sword w/twisted hilt  Ship opt 8/9

    The Claymore (from the Scottish Gaelic claidheamh-mòr, meaning “great sword”) is a Scottish variant of the late medieval 2 handed sword. It differed from other longswords of the period in that it usually had forward sloping quillons terminating in quatrefoils. Claymores were in use during constant clan warfare and fights with the English from the 15th to 17th century. Claymores did exist as early as the Wars of Scottish Independence although they were smaller and few had the characteristic quatrefoil design. The last time that claymores were seen on the battlefield in any significant number was the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689. Our Twisted Hilt Scottish Claymore features a hand-forged high carbon steel blade topped with brass hilt fittings and a hand carved real wood grip. This sword has a blunt blade and is designed for display only.
