Description

The Scottish sword has characteristic features that puts it apart from its continental cousins: the down sloping guard with spatulate ends and a wheel pommel with very high rivet block. Most swords made in Scotland were probably produced by cutlers mounting imported blades with hilts according to local taste and tradition. Scottish warriors were faithful to old customs and ways of warfare. This is evident from medieval times up to the 18th C. A sword of type XII according to Oakeshott´s typology is defined by having a broad and evenly tapering blade. It should have a good point and a fuller that is 2/3 to 3/4 of the blade length. This is perhaps the most classic of all blade styles. A weapon that is broad and bold with understated elegance in shapes lines and volumes. The heft of the sword is managed by an effective use of nonlinear distal taper and a deep and well defined fuller. This results in a lively and responsive feel that invites you to strike with the sword. The outer third of the blade curves gradually to a sharp point. This gives a visual balance to the broad base of the blade and also helps in establishing sweet handling characteristics.
