Scottish Basket Hilt Sword | Fencing Swords

Hanwei's Basket-Hilt sword is a duplicate of a circa-1760 original found in the Royal Armouries' English collection. The original sword's blade was probably created in Germany a century ago and re-hilted as basket designs improved. It has a peculiar blade with twin fullers running the majority of its length, as well as a basket with two carved "horned beastie" plaques.

This replica has a high carbon steel blade that has been fashioned into a stainless steel hilt to reduce maintenance. It has a wire-wrapped real ray skin handle and a leather basket lining that is covered in cloth.

Made by Hanwei.
