OVERVIEW

The basket-hilted sword, used especially by heavy cavalry up to the Napoleonic era is a development of the 16th century, rising to popularity in the 17th century and remaining in widespread use throughout the 18th century. Its basic design is still used by a plethora of parade swords of armed forces throughout the world. 

Our Battlecry version is inspired by a design that could have seen action at the battle of Culloden in 1746. The blade is made of 1065 high carbon steel, which has had the darkened, battle-worn finish applied to it along with the hilt fittings. The detailed steel basket guard is adorned with circular and diamond-shaped cut-outs and expertly executed grooving. It features a wooden grip that is covered in real ray skin and a silver metal wire. Black wool lines the basket.

Includes a matching leather scabbard with belt top and adjustable leather frog.
