CISH2002: Scottish Basket Hilt Backsword 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. This Basket-Hilt Sword 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. KEY FEATURES: -Authentic replica of Museum Piece -Fully functional -Scabbard included MEASUREMENTS: BLADE LENGTH: 33 1/2" HANDLE LENGTH: 6" OVERALL LENGTH: 39 1/2" WEIGHT: 5lb 6oz
