One of my all time favorite medieval weapons is the Scottish claymore, which is often called the great sword. I fell in love with this sword since I first watched Braveheart when it was in the hands of William Wallace. This power and cutting ability of this sword was so great that it could decapitate multiple opponents at the same time. The following video will provide a little demonstration of what the sword can do in real life. I am thinking of including a claymore sword in my fantasy book not only to connect with my Scottish roots, but also because I love the capabilities of the sword. Also, because I am such an anime fan I notice that a lot of character wield very big swords so I intend to incorporate this tradition with my fantasy book.
