LOWLANDER SWORD ANTIQUED Antiqued Lowlander Sword SH2065N by CAS Hanwei(SH2065N) by CAS Hanwei
Wielded with untamed ferocity on many a Gaelic battlefield, the massive Lowlander sword vividly illustrates the might of the Scots of old. Known as “Slaughter-Swords” in the 16th century, these were the swords of choice for Scottish mercenaries of the period, and at close to six feet long the Lowlander faithfully replicates a surviving museum piece. This version of the sword has an antiqued finish, closely replicating that of the original museum piece. Despite its great size, the Lowlander is beautifully proportioned and balanced. The typically Scottish quatrefoils in the ring guards attest to the heritage of this imposing piece. The grips of the Lowlander are leather-covered with an overlaid leather binding. A wall mount is provided to allow the transplanted Gael to display his sword with pride.

See model SH2065 for the bright-finished version of this sword.

While the Highland Scots are famous for their claymores, the Lowland Scots were feared for their great swords! These swords related to the claymore known as the “Lowland” are so named as several examples came from southern Scotland. Lowland swords had angular, round-section quillons, the terminals arranged as turned knobs set at right angles; some have open rings affixed to the center of the quillons on each side. They retained the feature of the quillon block extending to a spur on each side but, unlike the claymore’s, this spur was small and pointed. The pommels of these swords were large and spherical, the long tubular-section grips being of wood covered with leather. This massive Lowland Sword is from that age when knights wore mail, barrel helms and some small pieces of plate, and this type of sword could wreak havoc on that type of armor.
