Legendary Claymore Sword: A Legacy of Scottish Valor
Step into a realm of valiance and tradition with our meticulously crafted Claymore Sword, a beacon of Scottish martial heritage from the 15th to 17th centuries. With two iconic variants, this sword doesn't merely tell tales of historic battles; it embodies the fearsome spirit of Highland warriors.
Historical Panorama: The Claymore has two notable embodiments - one being a two-handed dominion of power with an optional basket grip, offering a camaraderie of finesse and control akin to a rapier yet yielding might akin to the revered longsword of Europe. Its sibling, bearing a forward sloping or V-shaped hilt, was a terror on the battlefields. The term "Claymore," first coined in the 18th century within Scotland, soon became synonymous with the basket gripped swords. Its essence was profoundly imbued as a symbol of strength and prowess when in 1707, under the Acts of Union, the Scottish and English armies unified, with the Claymore being emblematic of Highland valor. Its legacy lived on through Scottish regiments until the 19th century.
Exquisite Craftsmanship: Crafted from the historic pattern welded Damascus steel, our Claymore is a hard heat-treated, folded carbon steel masterpiece. With 11 pieces of steel folded meticulously five times, it unveils a spectacular 352 layers of unyielding might. The steel symbolizes a harmonious blend of hardness and durability, boasting a Rockwell Hardness rating of 55-56 HRC. The high carbon Damascus steel, particularly utilizing the robust 1095 steel, births a blade that holds a formidable edge while retaining the flexibility to withstand the fury of collisions.
