Scottish Swords

A sword is a bladed weapon, consisting in its most fundamental design of a blade and a handle. The blade is usually of some metal ground to at least one sharp edge and often has a pointed tip for thrusting. The handle, called the hilt, can be made of many materials, but the material most common is wood covered by leather, fish skin or metal wiring. The traditional weapon of the highland clansman, the Scottish swords have sown fear into the hearts of Englishmen for centuries. Having double edged blade, the hand forged swords are beautifully polished with triple fullers. The blade cuts very strongly due to its width and “V” shaped cross section. for more click here
