If you are an admirer of fine swords and bladed weapons of both yesterday and modern day then CAS Hanwei is going to be a favorite manufacturer of yours. Their craftsman made authentic reproductions using state of the art technologies and components to ensure you have a blade that is functional and beautiful. Take a look at CAS Hanwei and you will be adding them to your collection in short order.

Early highland swords almost invariably carried the double-edged "broadsword" blade, but by the time of the Battle of Culloden (1746) the single-edged "backsword" was at least equal in popularity. Our Basket-Hilt Backsword, replicated from an original in the collection of the Royal Armouries in England that dates from about 1760, has an unusual basket with twin engraved "horned beastie" plaques and a blade with twin fullers running most of its length. The blade is German in origin, but the hilt and blade are contemporary. The hilt is crafted in stainless steel, to minimize maintenance, while the blade is forged by Hanwei in high-carbon steel. The grip is covered with wire-wrapped genuine rayskin and the basket liner, like the original, is crafted in fabric-covered leather. The scabbard is leather-covered.
