Product description

The Scottish basket hilted broadsword was one of the most frequently used weapons from the last Jacobite Rising between 1750 and 1760. This type of weapon was developed from the mortary hilt broadsword and was used all over the British Isles in a large variety.

This broadsword is based on an original that is part of the Royal Armouries in Leeds. The basket is made in the Glasgow style. Although most blades for broadswords were made in Germany, the blades of Andrea Ferrara or Andrew Ferrara (as Sir Walter Scott called him) were made in Scotland itself. Ferrare was a well-known Italian sword smith who settled between the 16th and 17th century in Scotland near Arbroath. Ferrara is known for his exclusive quality.

This sword is 101 cm long with a blade of 85 cm and it weighs 1385 grams.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.

Please note. After finishing the product yourself, the warranty and return right expire. Celtic WebMerchant is not responsible for the obtained result.
