Brief Bio Claymore Dirk Measuring up to 152 centimetres (60 inches) in length, the claymore was a sword favoured by William Wallace. It was first used in the 13th century and it came with a twisted wooden hilt that afforded a good grip. It was better if the enemy was further away due to its size, but it had a long ricasso so, if an enemy got close, the user could grip further down the sword and stab at shorter range. A long thrusting dagger, the dirk was used by officers in the Scottish Highland regiments and it was prominent in the 13th century.
