Product information "Basket Hilt Broadsword"
Although Basket-Hilt swords appeared throughout Britain from the mid-sixteenth century on, their association with the the seventeenth and eighteenth century highlander has become legendary. Our Basket-Hilt Broadsword carries a typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-eighteenth century. It is likely that the blade of the original sword was made in Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined. Although the blade of the original bears the "Andrea Ferara" name, it is unlikely that it was made by this renowned Spanish swordsmith, as many good quality blades of the period were so marked (in various spellings!), irrespective of the actual maker. The forged double-edged blade of our sword is in fully tempered high-carbon steel with a solid steel basket. The grip is wire-wrapped rayskin and the basket liner is of felt-covered leather.

This sword comes with a sharp blade.

Very well made historical copy. Well made scabbard, the sword is very tight in them. A great choice for the collection.

Groß, gut verarbeitet, etwas klingenlastig. Das ist kein schwererer agiler Degen, sondern ein schweres Hiebschwert. Korb/Griff sind nichts für ganz große Hände! Meine sind groß, aber nicht extrem, und ich habe nach 10 Min. die rote Stoff/Leder-Innenlage herausgeschnitten, was für mich auch besser aussieht. Es bleiben kleine Lücken über und unter dem Griff, ist aber stabil. Der Knauf ist abschraubbar, der Griff aber verklebt, man kann es nicht einfach auseinandernehmen. Die Klingengravur ist hübsch, aber fast zu perfekt gearbeitet. Der Rochenhautgriff ist rauh und erfordert auf Dauer Lederhandschuhe.
