Scottish Broadsword, Culloden Sword
Early 18th Century Highland Basket-hilted Sword. In 1746 this type of sword was used in the battle of Culloden
The style is typical of the basket-hilted swords, with its flattened and grooved detail, which were
produced in the Glasgow Hammermen of Scotland.
This design is first attributed to John Simpson, a Freeman of the Glasgow Hammermen,  in the 1690s.
Another John Simpson, popularised the design while serving as the King's Armourer in the 1730s and 1740s.
By the time of the Jacobite Rebellions this sword was likely the most common style being used in the Highlands.
This replica has a double-edge blade with a hand-forged fuller and the typical
decorative basket hilt made of steel and covered with red cloth from inside.
