Highland Claymores

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.
