The Claymore was used in the constant clan warfare and border fights with the English from 1500 to 1650. Widely feared because its lightness made it faster in combat than its European counterparts. Early Scottish Medieval Swords developed a distinctive style of cross-hilt with downsloping arms that ended in spatulate swellings. The two-hand claymore seems to be an offshoot of those swords as they were developed into great swords. This dagger also has taken this Scottish influence. This design could of very easily found its way into the hands of a Scottish skirmisher on the battlefield. This dagger has a 9" stainless steel blade and measures 15 1/2" overall.
