£125.00 (INC. VAT)
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 a 2 handed sword, 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 wheel pommel. The hugh grip of the Claymore is leather-covered. Originally this sword was carried slung on the back, held in a leather back scabbard, which we do have available for this sword.

Price QualityPavlosThis is one hell of a mighty sword! The 4kg weight makes this a beast to use (in a good way). It arrived quite sharp and it would take only a little effort to make it very sharp, although with the 4kg weight behind it, razor sharpness appears unnecessary. This is probably my favorite of the many swords and weapons which I have purchased from Southern Swords. As usual excellent service and fast delivery, well done.
