The basket hilted broadsword was mainly used by the Scots between 1689 and 1746. Sometimes they are also called basket hilted claymores because the blade was often made of a broken claymore blade. The grip has a large basket that not only protected the hand but also provided a better balance. The slim blades were sometimes single-edged, those were backswords that were also often used in Germany, but the blade was mostly two-edged and it could both cut and slash. The basket hilted broadsword was often used in combination with a dirk.Details- Total length: approx. 92.5 cm

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.
