High medieval sword St. Maurice 13th century with scabbard
Mauritius (St.Maurice) is said to have been the leader of the Thebaic legion and was worshipped from the 4th century onwards as patron saint of the army as well as of the sword and knife smiths. The sword, which is kept and worshipped together with some of his bones in Turin, is said to have been the sword that beheaded Saint Mauritius. But as the sword was forged in the 13th century - nearly 1000 years after this event - this is very unlikely. This replica has a blade of hardened EN45 spring steel. The blades are not sharpened and the tip is rounded. The blade has a pronounced groove, which gives the sword great elasticity and lightness. The curved parry bar and the pommel in Brazil nut form are made of steel. The hilt is wrapped with dark leather strap. The high-quality scabbard is made of wood, which is wrapped in leather and equipped with practical brass carrying rings.

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 parties. 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.
