The Scottish basket hilted broadsword was one of the most frequently used weapons from the last Jacobite revolts between 1700 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 collection of the Kelvingrove museum in Glasgow. This broadsword is razor sharp just like the original. The blade is engraved with the name "Andrea Ferara".
Andrea Ferara was an Italian smith who made sword blades in Scotland. His blades were of very high quality and a large number of original Ferara swords were part of the collection of Hollywood Palace in Edinburgh. The basket of this broadsword is made in the Glasgow style.

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.
