The saint for whom this Saint Maurice Arming Sword is named after was widely considered to be a commander of a Theban Legion in Ancient Rome, as well as a Christian - a very successful Christian in a time when they were considered to be a threat to the Empire. According to the story, Saint Maurice led a fully Christian legion, and they were decimated by the Roman Emperor, to the last man, because of their staunch refusal to murder fellow Christians. This sword, reflecting the typical style of knightly sword, demonstrates how the story of Saint Maurice resonates with knights of a later age. The sword is hand crafted with a blade of EN45 carbon spring steel. The sword possesses straight edges and a rounded tip, with a fuller down about four-fifths of the blade length. The cast-steel guard is concave in shape, being curled towards the blade, in classic knightly fashion to provide good defense for the warriors hand. The grip is wrapped in leather, while the hilt is finished with a rounded nut pommel. Both versions include a wood scabbard that is wrapped in fine leather. The design reflects that of a typical knights sword, while the name - Saint Maurice Arming Sword - calls to mind a noble figure, as deserving of knighthood as any other in history.
This sword comes in two types. The regular version is tempered and hardened and features traditional shaping, making it a great choice for display or carrying to complete your look. The Light Combat version is tempered and hardened with thick edges and a rounded tip, making it suitable for light use in sparring and reenactment.
