The basket hilt broadsword is a cut and thrust weapon. One of the earliest basket-hilted swords was recovered from the wreck of the Mary Rose, an English warship lost in 1545.

The basket-hilted sword is a development of the 16th century, rising to popularity in the 17th century and remaining in widespread use throughout the 18th century, used especially by heavy cavalry up to the Napoleonic era.

This sword features a nickle plated guard as opposed to the traditional brass. It has a covered cup hilt and a steel scabbard.

Three quarters of the blade has been etched with a decorative filigree pattern.

Deepeeka claim it is battle ready but Fight Club are yet to test it.
