Details

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.

The Basket-Hilt Backsword, replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England that dates from about 1760, has an unusual basket with twin engraved horned beastie plaques and a blade with twin fullers running most of its length. The blade is German in origin, but the hilt and blade are contemporary. The sword has a polished finish. The hilt is crafted from stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, that of the SH2003 being polished. The blade is a high-carbon blade. The grips of the backswords are covered with wire-wrapped genuine rayskin and the basket liners are crafted in fabric-covered leather. The scabbards are leather-covered, black in the case of the SH2003.
