The „Claidheamh Mòr“ is a large two-edged broadsword used formerly by Scottish Highlanders. This sword was made after the original exhibited in the National museums of Scotland in Edinburgh. It dates from the early 16th century.
The pommel and guard are made of steel. The guard has a honeycomb motive which is open (so you can look through it). The bars of the guard are diamond shaped. On both sides of the blade, the guard has a protrusion of 12 cm long and 1,45 cm wide. This served to protect the blade. The protrusions are both decorated by several notches. The grip is made of hard wood. The disc pommel is riveted. The blade has a very narrow fuller running to 2/3rd of the blade.
Made in the Czech Republic.

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
