Product Description

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. Early highland swords almost invariably carried the double-edged "broadsword" blade but by the time of the Battle of Culloden (1746) the single-edged "backsword" was at least equal in popularity like ours.
