Highland Broadsword

The 1831 Highland Broadsword is characterised as a two-edged cut and thrust sword complete with a nickel-plated steel basket guard. Originally commissioned as the traditional weaponry of Highland Officers it is also known as the Highland Officer’s Sword.

The two distinctive characteristics of its hilt are its lining and fringe. The white buckskin lining is enclosed on the outside with red superfine silk, whilst its edges are crossed with blue silk ribbon.

The 1831 Highland Broadsword is supplied with either a brown leather scabbard with plated steel mouthpiece or in a nickel-plated steel scabbard.
