A two handed sword is not just purely for intimidation. As the wielder of this Scottish Claymore with Scabbard will find, they are also powerful weapons, ones that by virtue of size and weight lend powerful impact to every considerable swing. Originally dubbed the claidheamh mor in Scottish Gaelic, which means great sword, this particular weapon was favored for nearly 300 years as a powerful asset to any soldier. This particular weapon recreates the classic design of the Scottish claymore very well, featuring a strong, broad blade and the same distinctive guard. The blade is forged entirely out of dual hardened 5160 high carbon steel, while the hilt furnishings are made from mild steel. The blade features a deep fuller that runs down its length, helping manage its weight without detracting from its power or balance. The guard features quillons slanted towards the blade that are capped with quatrefoil tips. A round wheel pommel helps counterbalance the blade, while the full-length tang is wrapped in wood and leather for a comfortable grip. The tang is peened to the pommel for enhanced durability. Included with the sword is a matching scabbard, crafted in wood and wrapped in leather, to use with the sword when it is not in use. A sword belt is not included, so you are free to carry this sword using your own preferred attachment style. You will feel like a highland warrior when you wield this battle ready sword, although do not be surprised if your foes run when they see you approaching with this Scottish Claymore with Scabbard in hand.
