The Scottish Claymore

Two-Handed Scottish Great Swords and Single Handed Basket-Hilts

The Highlander Swords from Scotland are something to behold even in its two distinct varieties. The name Claymore (claidheamh-mòr or "Great Sword") has been debated of its very origins as it was used to describe the Scottish basket-hilt sword and was later applied to the earlier two handed great swords which eventually became synonymous with all Scottish swords. Many of the large two-handed claymore can be recognized by their distinct guards with forward sloped arms ending in quatrefoils. The later period basket claymore had very robust blades and basket guard that protect the wielders entire hand. These types of swords were items of distinction in the military and were often used with a targe or buckler (small shield).
