Description

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.
