Although Basket-Hilt swords appeared throughout Britain from the mid-sixteenth century on, their association with the seventeenth and eighteenth century Scottish highlander has become legendary. Our Basket-Hilt Broadsword, replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England, carries a typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-18th century. It is likely that the blade of the original sword, marked “Andrea Ferara;, was made in Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined. This version of the sword features an antiqued finish. The hilt is crafted in stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, and is finished with a museum-quality patina. The high-carbon blade is also lightly “antiqued” to promote authenticity. The grip is covered with wire-wrapped genuine rayskin and the basket liner, like the original, is crafted in fabric-covered leather. The scabbard is leather-covered. See model SH2002 for the bright-finished version of this sword. Made by Hanwei.
