Description Item Specs
The Crusades created a tumultuous period during which Western armies, fired up with the crusading spirit, wrestled most of the Holy Land away from the Muslims. However, holding that land was a different matter, and the Crusaders never again matched their initial success. The West, still somewhat barbaric, learned a great deal from their opponents, bringing back new knowledge from their travels. (Some historians believe the Crusades helped encourage a thirst for exploration among Europeans that helped foment the discovering of America.)

The Templar Order was established in 1118 A.D. to ensure the safety of the Holy Land and to protect the pilgrimage routes. The institution reached its maximum splendor in the 13th century. The Knights Templar considered themselves to be Knights of God, the honor of the church and of Christianity. Their motto was: "NON NOBIS, DOMINE, NON NOBIS, SED TUO NOMINI DA GLORIAM." (Not to us, God, not to us, but to Your name give glory."). It was a very well-organized military force, and the shock forces in the Crusades. They were the vanguard during attacks and the rearguard during retreats. For a century they ensured the effective governance of the Latin kingdom of Constantinople. They did not pay taxes or tributes, and they had properties all over Europe and the Middle East, reporting only the Pope.
  • Blade: The blade of the sword has been constructed from 440 Stainless Steel with a false edge. A beautiful scroll work pattern of the cross of Jerusalem has been added to the blade of the sword.
  • Scabbard: The scabbard of the sword is black leather with a belt loop.
  • Guard: The guard is a cruciform with a Oakeshott type 6 design. The symbol of the Knights Templar has been added in golden steel to the center of the guard. Each arm of the guard features a symbol of the Knights Templar.
  • Handle: The handle of the sword has been constructed from steel with a complex design of scroll work. The pommel is a Oakeshott type G with a cut out cross.
  • Plaque: A wooden plaque has been included with the sword.
  • Sheath: This is the Companion Scabbard for the 47" long Templar Knight Sword. The Scabbard is tough leather with an intricate pattern. The Scabbard comes with a belt loop to be worn on the hip. It can worn on either the right or the left side.
