Details

The basket-hilted sword rose in popularity during the 16th century and it’s basic design is still used by a plethora of parade swords of armed forces throughout the world. This particular cut and thrust type of design truly began to take hold during the English Civil War and over the next century found many variations of regional styles, especially throughout Northern England and Scotland.

 

Our Battlecry version is taken from a design that could have seen action at the battle of Culloden in 1746. The blade is made of 1065 high carbon steel, which has had the darkened, battle-worn finish applied to it along with the hilt fittings. The intricate steel basket guard is adorned with circular and diamond-shaped cutouts and expertly executed grooving.The wooden grip has been covered in real ray skin and a decorative silver metal wire. Black wool lines the basket.

 

This famous one-handed sword comes sharp and includes a matching leather scabbard with belt stop and adjustable leather frog.

    Its light and good but...
    Review by Gav the Viking
    The build quality isn't bad.
    Weight is fair to heavy
    Sharp but not razor
    The quality is on the pleasant side and fixtures well set.
    It looks great in the hand with the velvet hand surround.
    The wrist flick cutting method is good for those with a little strength of hand
    The battlecry range is very good addition to the armoury for 200 , can't go wrong
