CISH2003: Scottish Basket Hilt Backsword

CAS Hanwei

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. CAS Hanwei's 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 hilt is crafted in stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, while the blade is forged by Hanwei in high-carbon steel. The grip is covered with wire-wrapped genuine rayskin and the basket liner, like the original, is crafted in fabric-covered leather. The scabbard is leather-covered.
