Another popular sword is the basket hilt sword, a design favored by Scottish nobles for its strong combination of offense and defense. Also found here are a variety of other swords that were used by Celtic people throughout their years of battle. Some sword have unique blade patterns that are wavy and curved, while others have straight edges, so much so that they resemble battle swords of the medieval era. Some even go back as far as the La Tene culture, featuring angular, leaf-shaped blades with antennae pommels! More historic and aged pieces often feature a brass finish as well, to emulate the common metal of the age! Others are made from steel - some are carbon steel and thus are perfect for reenactment and use, while others are stainless and are made for decoration and display. Each sword will note its material, and thus tell you what it can be used for.
