Scottish Broad Sword
The traditional weapon of the highland clansman, this sword has sown fear into
the hearts of Englishmen for centuries. Its long, two-edged blade and
distinctive basket hilt, when combined with targe and dirk has proven to be more
than a match for enemy soldiers on battlefields the world over.
Now Cold Steel® has chosen to make our own replica of this famous weapon.
Our double-edged blade is hand forged and beautifully polished with triple
fullers. The stout basket hilt is made of blued steel with a wood grip covered
in samé (ray skin) and decoratively wrapped in wire. Each broadsword will pass
the stringent British Proof test and comes with a wood and leather scabbard
that’s complimented by blued steel chape and throat.
