  • Model: HW0101059


From the mid-sixteenth century . Basket-Hilt swords appeared throughout Britain although their association with the seventeenth and eighteenth century Scottish highlander has become legendary. Early highland swords almost always carried the double-edged"broadsword"blade but by the time of the Battle of Culloden (1746) the single-edged"backsword"was at least equal in popularity. The Basket-Hilt backsword and broadsword are replicated from original period pieces in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England. The Basket-Hilt Broadsword (SH2002) features a typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-18th century. It is believed that the blade of the original sword was made in Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined. Both the SH2002 and SH2002N have wire-wrapped ray skin handles and cloth-covered leather basket liner.

Customer Testimonials

I ordered a Zatoichi Samurai Sword and when it arrived i noticed the box had been damaged. After opening it, I found out that the sword had a 'ding' in it and was slightly bent. I called Swords of Honor and they immediately issued a call tag for UPS to come pick it up and sent me a new one (which arrived perfectly).
