As armour improved, swords were forced to change. This 12th Century Medieval Sword with Scabbard and Belt is an example of how they changed, developing into larger blades that excelled at slashing, crushing, and thrusting, all to negate a foes armour. This sword has an iconic cruciform design of similar type to what was favored during the early eras of the Crusades. The blade features a fuller designed to help reduce its weight as well as a subtle profile taper that helps the blade excel at slashing and hacking while still providing an effective point for piercing mail and slipping through armoured plates. The blade is dual hardened and hand forged from 5160 high carbon steel. Etched into the blade are twin cross emblems, as well as the phrase Militaris Templi. The straight quillons of the crossguard are understated yet effective, while the long grip and the jewel-shaped pommel help provide proper weight distribution and grippage. The sword features a full-length tang peened at the pommel. The sword includes a matching, leather-wrapped wood scabbard with an attached, interlaced sword belt, perfect for carrying and storing the sword when not in use. The leather on the scabbard is stamped with a Templar emblem at the throat and a Templar cross along its length. Strong, sturdy, and powerful, this 12th Century Medieval Sword with Scabbard and Belt is an impressive example of how effective a big sword can be, especially once you handle this blade and realize that it is not only powerful, but also responsive and quick, too.
