SCOTTISH BASKET-HILT BROAD SWORD Scottish Basket Hilt Broad Sword 88SB by Cold Steel(88SB) by Cold Steel
The traditional weapon of the highland clansman, this sword has sown fear into the hearts of Englishmen for centuries. Its long, two-edged blade and distinctive basket hilt, when combined with targe and dirk has proven to be more than a match for enemy soldiers on battlefields the world over.

Now Cold Steel® has chosen to make their own replica of this famous weapon. The double-edged blade is hand forged and beautifully polished with triple fullers. The stout basket hilt is made of blued steel with a wood grip covered in samé (ray skin) and decoratively wrapped in wire. Each broadsword will pass the stringent British Proof test and comes with a wood and leather scabbard that’s complimented by blued steel chape and throat.

The term "broadsword," while it has become a generic term for the European sword in general, is not really an accurate term when used in that way. The only "true" usage of the word "broadsword" is when it applies specifically to the Scottish basket-hilt weapon of the 17th and 18th C., when that specific term was in usage to that specific weapon (what some people also call a "claymore").
