High Middle Ages Templar sword SPQR with scabbard
This beautiful Templar sword has a hardened spring steel blade, tempered to approx. 48-50 HRC, which is decorated with three engraved paw crosses. It is forged through to the pommel and riveted to the end of the hilt. The pronounced groove on both sides runs almost to the tip of the blade and gives the one-handed sword both elasticity and lightness. The steel quillon bears the engraved Latin inscription IN HOC SIGNO VINCES. This phrase, which is said to have appeared in the form of a cross in the sky to the first Christian Roman emperor Constantine the Great during the battle against Maxentius (312 AD), is today used as a motto by the American Knights Templar. The leather-wrapped wooden handle ends with a flat steel disc knob with Templar cross engraving on both sides. The beautiful sword scabbard with wooden core is covered with leather and finally equipped with a carrying strap wrapped around the scabbard. With its blunt, 2 mm thick striking edges and its rounded tip this knight's sword is perfect for re-enactment or show fight or sparring.

general warranty for swords
Our show combat weapons are subject to the legal warranty of two years like all other goods. However, it should be noted that the customer is responsible for providing evidence of defects (e.g. material defects) that were already present at the time of purchase and have not been claimed within 6 months. Complaints after 6 months are therefore often difficult and unfortunate for both sides. An exhibition sword is naturally an object of wear and tear. Even the best and most expensive exhibition sword becomes chipped after heavy use, the parry bar can become wobbly and the grip can become loose. This is normal, because strong forces act on the material. Even with these blades the unlikely case can occur that they break if they are already weakened by several and deep embrasures. These are therefore usually not justified reasons for complaint but normal wear and tear. A used show sword shows signs of use after use.
