Scottish basket hilt broadsword

The traditional weapon of the Highland clansman, these swords have sown fear into the hearts of Englishmen (and other foes of the Scots) for centuries. The broadsword features a hand forged double edged blade made of tempered 1050 high carbon steel, beautifully polished with triple fullers. These swords are extremely sharp, and the blades have all passed the stringent British Proof tests. Complete with a wood and leather scabbard complemented by a blued steel chape and throat.
