Scottish Swords and Celtic Swords
Medieval Collectibles is your leader in Celtic and Scottish swords. We carry both fully functional swords and decorative swords from manufacturers around the world. The most well known Celtic and Scottish sword is the two handed claymore sword. The word claymore has been used to describe two distinct types of swords used by Scottish warriors and soldiers. The first was a large, two-handed sword used in the medieval period. The second was a large basket-hilted sword and was issued to Scottish troops in the 18th century. It was feared because of its strength and size and was the primary weapon used during the constant warfare that became the way of life for the Scottish clans. Today, it stands as a great symbol of Scottish heritage. Other swords related to the Celtic and Scottish is the backsword and the Scottish Backet Hilts.
