Embrace the rich heritage of the Scottish Highlands with our exquisite Lion Claymore Sword. This weapon pays tribute to the traditional claymore, a Gaelic emblem of strength and prowess from the 15th-17th centuries.
The claymore has two distinct interpretations—one being a two-handed sword with an optional basket grip for dual-hand wielding, reminiscent of a rapier hilt. The other variant features a unique v-shaped hilt. The term "claymore," initially used to describe basket-gripped swords, became a symbol of Highland tenacity following the Scottish-English union of 1707. The Lion claymore continued to hold its place of honor in Scottish regiments well into the 19th century.
