The descendant of the famous and larger Claymore, while the rest of Europe developed nimble sabers and duelling swords, the Scots favoured a heavier battle sword. Even so, this was called the claidheamh beag, or ‘Claybeg’ (meaning small sword). Usually accompanied by a small targe, this sword was especially prominent among the Highlanders who fought in the Jacobite Rebellions. It was later adopted by the officers in Scottish Regiments in the British army.
