Scottish Broadsword, Culloden Sword with Steel Scabbard

This style is typical of the basket-hilted swords, with its flattened and grooved details, 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 popularized the design while serving as 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.

Our replica has a double-edged blade with a hand-forged fuller and the typical decorative basket hilt made of steel and lined with red felt.

  • Overall length: approx. 99cm
