    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. Our Basket-Hilt back sword, replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England, carries a typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-18th century. When swung in a cutting motion this sword follows through the cut and is easily recovered back to the guard. It is a fast weapon and feels ideal for thrusting. It feels right for cutting as well, but the shape of the blade suggests this to be less effective than thrusting. The basket and pommel are also well suited for hitting and bashing, and it takes little imagination to see how this might be used in the manner of a knuckle duster or even a buckler in a close quarter fighting situation. It is a very wieldable weapon and the details are excellent. It has a finish that is very pleasing, much because it captures the feel of museum pieces.
