The word claymore was first used in reference to swords in the 18th century in Scotland and parts of England to refer to basket-hilted swords. They were used in constant clan warfare at their English borders. This claymore is made from stainless steel with a whopping 38.75 inch blade. It features a two-handed cruciform hilt with pommel and like in the 15th to 17th centuries this sword has sloping quillons with quatrefoil terminations. The handle is made from wood with a spiral twist design running down the length. Then it was stained in a rich oak brown. An advantage to carrying this great sword was that your enemy could be slain from a longer range than your average sword. If the enemy got too close the guard of the Claymore sword could be used to effectively brush off attacks and strike the enemy, and if they get very close the pummel on the hilt could be used to crack skulls. One unique thing about this sword is in battles, soldiers would circle the sword around the head to show the enemy that they were intending to take off their heads as trophy when the battle was won. Included with this iconic sword is a handmade leather sheath.
