Mainstay of the Highland warriors of the late 15th and 16th centuries, the Claymore had a uniquely styled hilt that sets it apart from other great swords of the period. Typically of longsword length, this versatile weapon could deliver great sweeping slashes or powerful thrusts. Replicated from a surviving museum piece our Claymore is classic in its design, with distinctive sloping quillons terminating in quatrefoils and a high-collared quillon block with langets following the blade fuller. The leather-covered grip is topped by a globate pommel. The grip of the Claymore is leather-covered.Originally carried slung on the back, the Claymore matches perfectly with our OL1038/OL1038B back scabbard. See model SH2060N for the antique-finished version of this sword. Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece. 41" bl, 54 3/4" ov.
