The totally awesome yet totally affordable Rustic Scottish Broadsword is designed to look like it has survived for centuries. A perfect way to add a flair of Scottish realism to your collection of historic replica swords.

The term "broadsword," while it has become a generic term for the European sword in general, is not really an accurate term when used in that way. The only "true" usage of the word "broadsword" is when it applies specifically to the Scottish basket-hilt weapon of the 17th and 18th C., when that specific term was in usage to that specific weapon (what some people also call a "claymore") Early incarnations of the basket-hilt sword were in many respects more effective than later models. The basket of steel bars did an excellent job of protecting the hand, yet did not add a great amount of weight. Well balanced, this was an excellent cut and thrust weapon.
