The greatest hero in Scottish history, William Wallace lived seven hundred years ago. Wallace and his band of lowlanders routed a superior English army despite being largely outnumbered at Stirling Castle. He became known as one of the most valiant freedom fighters Scotland has ever seen. This led Wallace to be Knighted and granted the title “Guardian of Scotland”.
This impressive broad sword has been named appropriately for the valour shown by those freedom fighters. This magnificent two handed early Claymore measures a massive 61” in overall length. The hand forged 47 1/2” blade is constructed from 1065 high carbon steel and fully tempered. The full tang handle is a wood core and finished with a leather wrap. The upper part of the blade is also wrapped in leather to allow a safe grip in close quarters. Large swords like this were not worn but carried over the shoulder with the flat of the blade down without a scabbard during this period.
