Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The term claymore may refer to one of two distinct types of Scottish swords it may refer to a two-handed sword with a cross hilt, of which the guards were usually turned down, used by the Highlanders of Scotland; or to a basket-hilted broadsword adopted in the 16th century, which is still worn as the full dress sword in the Highland regiments of the British Army. The two-handed claymore was a large sword used in the late Medieval and early modern periods. It was used in the constant clan warfare and border fights with the English from circa 1400 to 1700. The last known battle in which it is considered to have been used in a significant number was the Battle of Killiecrankie in 1689. It was somewhat smaller than other two-handed swords of the era.show more
