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 high-carbon steel sword blade is nicely polished. The grip of the broadsword is covered with wire-wrapped genuine rayskin and the basket liner is crafted in fabric-covered leather.
