Highland Claymore

The Scottish Claymore is thought to have developed from the lowland gallowglass sword. The typical style that you see here is an elaboration on the original form where the ends of the down turned quillons are pierced with quatrefoils and the langet, or tongue, is extending down the blade itself. The Claymore was in use from the 14th century right up until the Battle of Culloden and remains the definitive Scottish sword.

I offer the basic sword with an oak ,leather or ebony grip, but you may also choose to have a Celtic knotwork grip ring in silver, inlaid pommel coins or etching on the blade itself as additional details.


Although not traditionally worn on the back, I can also supply a scabbard and belts to carry the sword.
