40" SCOTTISH CLAYMORE SWORD (901070) by Frost Cutlery
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 of longsword length, this versatile weapon could deliver great sweeping slashes or powerful thrusts. As most discover, big blade can be quite cumbersome so this affordable 40 inch Claymore Sword was designed shorter than most making it quick on the draw and easy on the carry. This beauty sports a virtually maintenance free 440 stainless steel blade that features a blood grove down most of its length. The hilt of this claymore has a pommel and guard finished in polished nickel that complements a long twisted turned black Pakka wood handle. A twisted spiral design that offers a sure grip for its wielder. A leather scabbard comes with this Claymore Sword, allowing your fearsome presence to go mobile. A great and affordable entry level sword suitable for home decor, film, theatre as a non-contact prop, and realistic addition to any Scottish warrior costume.

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 to 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.
