Can anyone attest to the historical accuracy of this book?

How much historical material is available to properly (as close as possible anyway) learn the techniques associated with the Scottish basket-hilts?

Kenneth,
Have you heard about Thomas Page?
He wrote a manual on the use of the Scottish broadsword in 1746. Paul Wagner (who is one of the two authors/editors of both Scottish Swordsmanship and Highland Broadswird) has studied it and has worked with David A. Teague in Alaska figuring it out. David A Teague has written a "Page for Dummies" (a short version of Pages manual in modern language) which I can e-mail you if you PM me your e-mail.

Cheers,
Henrik

Constant and true.

It's definately historically accurate, it's just two period manuals, and an essay.

Thanks, that's a pretty good article Henrik.

Does anyone know if there are any broadsword wasters? I found this: http://www.woodenswords.com/WMA/index.htm (click on the single stick link), but that is not quite what I was looking for.
