Step into the Scottish Highlands with the Claymore, a legendary sword emblematic of valor and Gaelic pride. The Claymore stands as a testament to Scottish heritage and martial prowess from the 15th through the 17th centuries. Its name, derived from the Gaelic "Claidheamh-mòr" meaning "Great Sword", offers a hint of its grandeur.

Historical Significance: The Claymore comes in two renowned variants. The first is the two-handed sword, reminiscent of the European bastard or longsword, but set apart by its distinctive optional basket grip. This intricate basket hilt design, similar to the rapier but accommodating both hands, offers not just protection but a signature aesthetic. The second variant, marked by its forward-sloping or V-shaped hilt, is equally iconic. As the 18th century dawned, "claymore" in Scotland specifically referred to the basket-hilted design. By 1707, with the Acts of Union merging Scottish and English armies, this mighty blade became the Highland emblem of might. Scottish regiments wielded the Claymore with pride, ensuring its legacy well into the 19th century.

Exquisite Craftsmanship

  • Blade: Forged from the esteemed 1095 steel, the blade exemplifies perfection in metallurgy. With a .95% carbon content, it ranks among the highest carbon steels used in sword making. Though other common high carbon swords utilize 1045 steel, it's the 1095's ability to maintain a keen edge that sets the Claymore apart. Yet, such hardness does pose a challenge: flexibility. To combat this, a specialized clay tempering process is employed. Clay is thickly applied on the blade, save for the edge, ensuring that during quenching, the blade cools slower, retaining flexibility without compromising the razor-sharp edge.

  • Handle: The handle, a blend of tradition and function, is crafted from wood and accentuated with Damascus Steel bolsters. This design ensures a firm grip while adding an element of sophistication.

  • Sheath: Crafted from durable leather, the sheath ensures protection and ease of transport.


  • Handle: Wood, complemented with Damascus Steel Bolsters
  • Length: A striking range from 38" to 64"
  • Rockwell Hardness: 56-58 HRC
  • Sheath: Premium Leather
  • Blade Composition: 1095 Steel

The Scottish Claymore – a symbol of heritage, strength, and Scottish spirit. Whether for collection, re-enactment, or admiration, owning a Claymore is owning a piece of history. Channel the spirit of the Scottish warriors with every swing!

Very nice addition to my blades collection

Jaden Nichols

The blade came absolutely perfect in the mail, the damascus finish on the blade looks like water smoothly running through a stream, and the blade cuts like a dream. I am in love with my claymore, the only one I could find that came with a sheath. The guard was a little chipped of its finish and the handle rotated when I first got it, but it wasn't anything a little bit of elbow grease and tools couldn't handle. The sword is wonderful and I am so glad I ordered this 58" steel piece of art.
