Information for Two-Handed Scottish Broadsword - Wallace Sword:

the Wallace Sword. Steel Pommel & Quillions with a Bound Leather Grip. Tempered spring steel Blade.

The Wallace Sword is an antique claymore purported to have belonged to William Wallace (1270 – 1305), a knight and Scottish patriot who led a resistance to the English occupation of Scotland during the Wars of Scottish Independence. It is said to have been used by William Wallace at the Battle of Stirling Bridge in 1297 and the Battle of Falkirk (1298), however the weapon is of much later provenance.

The blade of the sword measures 4 feet 4 inches in length (132cm) and including the handle 5 feet 6 inches (168cm)[1]. The breadth of the blade varies from 2.25 inches at the guard to 0.75 inches before the point. The sword weighs 6 lb (2.7 kg).

Today the purported Wallace sword can be viewed at the Wallace Monument near Stirling in Scotland. The sword was recovered from Dunbarton by Charles Rogers, author of The Book of Wallace. Rogers, on 15 October 1888 renewed a correspondence with the Secretary of State for War, with the result that the Major-General commanding forces in North Britain was authorised to deliver the weapon to his care for preservation in the Wallace Monument.
