Product information "Scottish broadsword, Culloden-sword"
Early 18th Century Highland Basket-hilted Sword. Many brave Highlander who stormed across the fields of Culloden in 1746 to meet his destiny carried this sword. This style is typical of the basket-hilted swords, with its flattened and grooved detail, produced in the Glasgow Hammermen of Scotland. This design is first attributed to John Simpson, a Freeman of the Glasgow Hammermen, in the 1690s. Another John Simpson, popularized the design while serving as King's Armourer in the 1730s and 1740s. By the time of the Jacobite Rebellions this sword was likely the most common style being used in the Highlands. Our replica has got a doubble-edge blade with a hand-forged fuller and the typical decorative basket hilt made of steel and covered with red cloth from inside. Details overall: approx. 99.0 cm blade length: approx. 85.0 cm max. width of the blade: ca. 3.6 cm weight (without scabbard): approx. 1.4 kg Attention!
