A beautiful Scottish traditional sword with an antique patinated finish. The Scottish basket hilted broadsword was one of the most widely used weapons during the last Jacobite uprisings between 1700 and 1760. During the sixteenth century this type of sword became increasingly popular and today it is still worn during military parades. This basket hilt sword is based on originals that were used during the Battle of Culloden in 1746 and is made with traditional materials in combination with modern high-quality steel. The blade is made of high quality 1065 carbon steel, tempered to a hardness of 50 HRC, with an antique appearance due to the patina finish. The grip is made of wood with ray skin and steel wire. The basket is decorated with beautiful patterns and is lined with black wool. The sword is delivered including a scabbard and certificate of authenticity.
The Battlecry line of historical swords, daggers and axes was designed in collaboration with John Clements. John has unsurpassed knowledge of historical fencing and medieval and Renaissance fighting methods. All items are hand-forged by the forgery of Windlass Steelcrafts of high quality 1065 tempered carbon steel and are strong and resilient. The swords have an extra wide full tang and all weapons are sharp and suitable for cutting tests.
Each model has been put through rigorous physical testing to exceed industry standards. These battle tested weapons have a patinated finish which makes them look even more authentic and historical. Each weapon is individually inspected at every step of the manufacturing process, and only after passing the inspection do they receive the blacksmith's mark on the blade. Each weapon is delivered including a certificate, signed by all craftsmen who have worked on the weapon. Also included is a matching scabbard and, if applicable, a swordfrog.
