Our Claymore Guard is made from welded 1/4″ hardened 4130 carbon steel. This guard features the iconic trefoil quillion ends and a total tip-to-tip length of 11″. While we don’t offer much customization to this guard, we do offer the 3 finishes: “Bright”, a bright antiqued satin metal finish. “Blued”, a heat blued finish. Naturally darker, more durable and rust prohibitive than chemical bluing. Finally, “Polished”, a bright shiny deep polish that provides the best rust resistance and detail preservation.
We designed this guard to be a great specimen of the Claymore Longswords that struck fear in the hearts of the English invaders from the 1400’s through the early 1700’s. Gaelic claidheamh-mór meant “great sword” and that is exactly what this is. We find it particularly well balanced bearing our Standard Long Sword Blade.
This guard is compatible with our Basic Back Sword Blade, Standard Long Sword Blade, Type XV Blade, Type XVa and Type XI Blade.
