Our Scottish Highland Basket Guard is made from 12 ga 4130 carbon steel. This guard features a complex basket of bars that gives complete coverage to the hand with an aesthetic that is truly iconic. 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 perfect rendition of the highland basket hilts that were the ultimate status symbol of the Scottish gentleman in the 17th and 18th centuries.
This guard is compatible with our Basic Back Sword Blade, Standard Long Sword Blade, Type XV Blade and Type XI Blade.
