SCOTTISH WILLIAM WALLACE SWORD (590) MARTO of Spain
This huge Scottish sword is just like the one wielded by Mel Gibson throughout the Braveheart™ movie, and much like the one used by Sir William Wallace during the Middle Ages. Yet, unlike the ancient sword this 52 inch movie collectable is made with a modern, maintenance-free, 420 stainless steel blade! Wrapped with a beautiful dark leather grip, it's a high quality, officially licensed, affordable, huge and yet very wieldable weapon--quite possibly the best Marto movie sword reproduction on the market today!
The Scottish Claymore was usually identified with the Scots as a symbol of pride and strength. The Claymore, or "Claidheamh-mor" (Great Sword) in Gaelic is a two handed broad sword utilized by the Scottish Highlander throughout several centuries. Used in the constant clan warfare and border fights with the English from 1500 t0 1650 and still in use as late as the Rebellion of 1745, the two-handed Claymore seems to be an offshoot of earlier broadswords as they were developed into great-swords. It was said that the bearer of a Claymore needed no shield (how could he carry one, anyway?) because the reach of the sword provided its own protection.
