Although Basket-Hilt swords appeared throughout Britain
from the mid-sixteenth century on, their association with the
seventeenth and eighteenth century Scottish highlander has become
legendary. Basket-Hilt Broadsword, replicated from an
original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England, carries a
typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-18th century. It is likely that
the blade of the original sword, marked “Andrea Ferara”, was made in
Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined.
The hilt is crafted in stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, while
the blade is forged 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 sueded leather. The scabbard is

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. 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.
