Claymore History Info
This Scottish sword takes its design from a sword popular in the late medieval and Renaissance periods, specifically the 15th and 16th centuries. The name is specific to Scottish swords as it is an Anglicization of the Gaelic term for big or great sword. Its design was fairly uniform from sword to sword, however the largest known claymore is in the National War Museum in Edinburgh. That museum piece was considerably heavier and longer than the historical average.
