A claymore is the Scottish variant of the late medieval two-handed longsword. It is characterised as having forward-sloping cross guards, with quatrefoil terminations, to protect the hands.
The claymore was in use from the 15th to 17th centuries and was used in constant clan warfare and border fights with the English.
This Scottish Claymore sword letter opener measures 16.5cm and has a steel blade with metal handle. It is antique siver plated and is supplied in a clear box with an information card.
