Claymore
Time Period: 14th-18th century
Location: Scotland
Common Construction: Steel

The claymore is a two handed sword used by the Scottish. The name is derived from the Gaelic for "great sword". It was used primarily as an anti-cavalry weapon, in which a soldier would stand in front of a charging horse, and at the last moment cut out the horse's legs and step out of the way so as not to be trampled.

The stereotypical claymore has a guard angled towards the blade with a quatrefoil design, and weighed between 5 and 5.5 lbs. Although this is not the only design, it is the most recognizable.

There are 18th century references to a basket-hilted claymore that was wielded in one hand, but this is likely a synonym for the Scottish broadsword and not a unique weapon.

Many fast food chains, like McDonald's, Taco Bell and Subway, do voluntarily provide them, in part for indemnity against lawsuits and in part because they realize some of their customers actually want to know what they're eating.
