Viking sword Charlemagne with scabbard
The Sword of Joyeuse, now in the Louvre Museum, is one of the most famous swords in history. Historical records link the sword to Charlemagne, King of the Franks. If it really belonged to the famous king who reigned some 1,200 years ago, the Sword of Joyeuse would have been used in countless coronation ceremonies and is linked to ancient myths and legends that attribute magical powers to it. The story begins in 802 A.D. Legend has it that the Sword of Joyeuse, which means joyful in French, was forged by the famous blacksmith Galas and took three years to complete. The sword was said to have magical powers, which were connected to the sword. It is said to have been so bright that it could outshine the sun and blind the enemies of its wearer in battle, and anyone who wielded the legendary sword could not be poisoned. The Emperor Charles the Great, who returned from Spain, is said to have set up camp in the region and acquired the sword.

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.
