The SH1048 Basket-Hilt Backsword has its origins in the Scottish swordmaking town of Stirling, famous for the Allen family of swordmakers. Also known as 1080-GT, it has a distinctive barred basket, with designs showing its Celtic ancestry, while the basket features the traditional heart and circle piercing employed by several makers from the early 18th century. The name ‘backsword’ refers to the single-edge with a flat back.
