SCOTTISH WILLIAM WALLACE MINI SWORD by ART GLADIUS
These mini swords are fine miniatures of the larger swords produced by Art Gladius. The blades are made of stainless steel and as in much detail as their larger counterparts. Art Gladius mini swords are perfect accents for the home or office and can be used as letter openers or simple display items.
The Scottish Claymore was usually identified with the Scots as a symbol of pride and strength. The Claymore, or "Claidheamh-mor" (Great Sword) in Gaelic is a two handed broad sword utilized by the Scottish Highlander throughout several centuries. Used in the constant clan warfare and border fights with the English from 1500 t0 1650 and still in use as late as the Rebellion of 1745, the two-handed Claymore seems to be an offshoot of earlier broadswords as they were developed into great-swords. It was said that the bearer of a Claymore needed no shield (how could he carry one, anyway?) because the reach of the sword provided its own protection.
