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 our 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. The sword is available in both polished and antiqued finishes, the finish of the SH2060N closely replicating that of the original museum piece. The grips of the Claymore are leather-covered, black in the case of the SH2060 and brown for the SH2060N.
