swordThe traditional weapon of the highland clansman, the Scottish swords have sown fear into the hearts of Englishmen for centuries. Having double edged blade, the hand forged swords are beautifully polished with triple fullers. The blade cuts very strongly due to its width and "V" shaped cross section. Claymore is the one-hand basket-hilted broadsword- a form of the Scottish sword.
