Description

Although Basket-Hilt swords appeared throughout Britain from the mid-sixteenth century on, their association with the seventeenth and eighteenth century Scottish highlander has become legendary.

Our Basket-Hilt Broadsword, replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England, carries a typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-18th century. It is likely that the blade of the original sword, marked “Andrea Ferara”, was made in Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined.

The hilt is crafted from stainless steel, to minimize maintenance. The grip is covered with wire-wrapped genuine rayskin and the basket liners are crafted in fabric-covered leather. The scabbard is leather-covered, black.
