The Valiant Armoury Scottish One Handed Medieval Sword is part of Valiants Craftsman Series and was entirely made in the USA by Zach and Sonny Suttles. There are many Scottish Claymore swords available on the market, but precious few of the arming swords of the Medieval Scots, which mirror the Claymore in having a regionally distinct aesthetic for their finely tuned weapons of war. Valiant’s premium-tier offering of this Scottish Arming Sword has a blade of 6150 high carbon steel which has been well-tempered and sharpened. The sword strikes a fine balance between agility and maneuverability and the authoritative heft and balance needed to strike blows that chop, hack and deeply slice with great ability for a sword that is altogether in fine balance in mass, weight and cutting ability.
The crossguard and pommel are steel and the wooden grip is well-shaped and contoured and is finished with a tight and excellently executed binding of oxblood hue leather. The blade and hilt were mounted together with a hot-peen construction for a powerful and strong permanent connection.
The sword is completed with a high quality scabbard with an integrated sword belt knotted and interwoven with the scabbard. The scabbard is wood which is tightly leather-bound; the chape is steel and the belt buckle is antiqued metal with a steel tongue. The sword belt is thick and premium quality leather with matching fittings and can be adjusted to fit.
