An Anglicization of the Gaelic claidheamh-mor, or Great Sword, the claymore is a Scottish version of the medieval two-handed longsword. Used during the 15th to 17th centuries, traditional claymores feature crossguards that sloped down towards the blade with quatrefoils at the end of the quillons. The large size of this Scottish sword required the wielder to use both hands, making them symbols of strength and skill. As the classic Highland sword, two-handed claymores are well-associated in pop culture and history with the Wars of Scottish Independence and figures such as William Wallace and Robert the Bruce.
