The Highland Claymore
The most recognized form of the Highland Claymore came into being around the
end of the 15th century. Because there are so few original claymores in
existence today, most of the information as to style and form comes from burial
tombs that depicted the effigy of the buried person with a sword of that period.
Today, it stands as a great symbol of Scottish heritage.
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 claymore sword is available in both polished and
antiqued finishes. Both are 54 3/4" overall, with a 41" blade, weight
is 4 lb. 14 oz.
