Mainstay of the Highland warriors of the late 15th and 16th centuries, the Claymore had a uniquely styled hilt that sets it apart from other great swords of the period. Typically of hand-and-a-half length, this versatile weapon could deliver great sweeping slashes or powerful thrusts.
Replicated from a surviving museum piece the Hanwei Claymore is classic in its design, with distinctive sloping quillons terminating in quatrefoils and a high-collared quillon block with langets following the blade fuller. The leather-covered grip is topped by a globate pommel.
Originally carried slung on the back, the Claymore matches perfectly with a back scabbard (e.g. item no. MW0101050600). This is is the antique-finish version of the Claymore sword. It is also available (SH2060) in a 'normal' plain version.
