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 Paul Chen Basket-Hilt Broadsword,  replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England,  carries a typical Glasgow-style hilt from the mid-18th century.  It is likely that the blade of the original sword,  marked “Andrea Ferara,”  was made in Germany a century earlier and re-hilted as basket designs were refined.  The hilt is crafted in stainless steel,  to minimize maintenance,  while the blade is forged in high-carbon steel.  The grip is covered with wire-wrapped genuine rayskin and the basket liner,  like the original,  is crafted in fabric-covered sueded leather.  The scabbard is leather-covered.
