A replica William Wallace (Mel Gibson) claymore from Gibson’s biopic history film Braveheart.
When his secret bride is executed for assaulting an English soldier who tried to rape her, William Wallace (Mel Gibson) begins a revolt against King Edward I of England.
This replica was made by Brian Davenport, who produced stunt swords for the production. Wallace wielded his claymore during numerous battles against the English while leading a rebellion against their rule. Wallace's sword is used throughout the film and Gibson held it on many of the film's promotional images and posters. He typically wore his claymore on his back when charging into battle armed with a war hammer, switching to the sword to cut down his enemies. At the end of the film, when Robert the Bruce (Angus Macfadyen) decided to go into battle against the English and continue Wallace's legacy, Hamish (Brendan Gleeson) hurled the sword into the battlefield to inspire the Scottish soldiers before they charged.
A claymore is a two-handed Scottish broadsword used since the late Medieval period. This weapon is made of metal and features a leather-wrapped grip and blade shoulder. It has a wide aluminium cross guard and a rounded aluminium pommel. The blade, pommel and cross guard have been intentionally tarnished to look well used and aged, with nicks and dents along the length of the sword to give it the appearance of having been used in battle. Overall it remains in an excellent condition.
Materials: Ferrous Metals, Leather.
