Two Hand Claymore
Circa 1200 - 1600.
The remains of this massive Scottish war sword are housed in London's renonwned British Museum. The furniture is brass, as with many Highland weapons, to prevent rust in the chronically wet mountain climate.
This type of sword would have been carried to the great battlefields where the Scots struggled against their most bitter enemy, the English. In the hands of a brawny highland warrior this would have been a devastating weapon.
Hardwood grip accentuates a very attractive sword. High-carbon steel fullered blade, ready for an edge.
Total length: 135 cm
