Claymore In Singapore

Those who frequent Orchard Road the shopping capital of Singapore may be familiar with this short stretch of road call Claymore Road. Why the name Claymore? There is a story behind it that dates back to a time long long ago.

Legends has it that hundreds of years ago Singapore was terrorised by guts eating monsters known as Yomas. A group of female warriors with blond hair and silver eyes from a nameless organization arrived and got rid of them. The female warriors did not let known their names or what to address them by. Characterised by the big claymore swords they carry with them, people simply call them Claymores. To honour them for their kind deeds, the road was named after them.

Claymore Drive

Claymore Hill

Claymore Plaza. The HQ of the last remaining Claymores in Singapore.

Oh btw, Claymore manga chapter 79 is out. Read it here.

Very interesting chapter even without any action. The origin of Yomas, the claymore swords and the possibility there is a bigger world out there are covered. Story is getting more and more interesting.

    Gordon, the claymore is essentially an anti-personnel mine. Casualties while traveling there must be high indeed.

    I’ve always thought its named after some RPG sword, but after watching the anime, im enlightened!

  11. Mizunaga says:

    @Misakichii, If you didn’t know, a claymore is a kind of sword.. It’s from Scottish Gaelic, and means, “great sword”. Read more of the claymore here.

  12. Panther says:

    I was talking about the mine Gordon lol. Did the pun on purpose.

    The claymore is a huge zweihander anyway, doubt if I could wield a real one without some pain. 3 swings and I would be out for sure.
