Culloden Sword Kilt Pin  AP 065

Each kilt pin is designed and handcrafted in Scotland by skilled Scottish craftsmen using Fine English Pewter, exceeding the high standards set by BSEN611-1 and British Standard 5140. These standards are strictly enforced by the Association of British Pewter Craftsmen.

This very collectible kilt pin is a carefully designed replica of a sword excavated from the Battlefield of Culloden  near Inverness. This is the same as 065A, but in a highly polished rather than antiqued finish of the sword excavated from the Battlefield of Culloden, near Inverness.

Approximate size: 1″ x 4.”

Non-allergenic and non-toxic. Will not tarnish and easily cleaned with soap and water.

                                         ” OW TA DEFEAT MANNY AN ANGLISHMAN.”

This Culloden Kilt Pin is a faithful reproduction of a sword which dates back to the Battle of Culloden in 1746. Discarded on the battlefield, the original survives and is housed in a museum. Art Pewter designers were given permission to reproduce this highly attractive “basket” style sword as a Kilt Pin in Fine English Pewter. It is made entirely with a first-run mix consisting of 94% pure tin (the fourth most valuable metal after Platinum, Gold, and Silver). The alloy mix consists of 6% pure copper, antimony and a trace of Palladium to enhance the natural beauty of fine English pewter. No recycled metal is used. This is the  “stabbing” sword that replaced the “slashing” Claidhmhor that served the Highland clans very well on the battlefield for over 350 years.
