"The Sheikah used the very essence of ancient technology to forge this greatsword. It was designed to oppose the Calamity, but its low durability made it impractical in battle."
Hyrule Compendium

The Royal Guard's Claymore is an item from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It is a two-handed sword with an attack rating of 72, though this may be increased by certain weapon bonuses. A Royal Guard's Claymore can be found in one of the cells in Hyrule Castle Lockup. A Moblin in the Guards' Chamber of Hyrule Castle wield one as well and will respawn with one each Blood Moon.

Like the other "Royal Guard" weapons created using Ancient Sheikah technology, its low durability made it an impractical weapon despite its high attack power. Its design is apparently based on the Royal Claymore, though differs in coloration and lacks the latter's durability.
