The Crusades (1096-1272) were a series of major military actions in the Near East fought between Christian and Saracen armies with the original goal of capturing Jerusalem. Richard the Lionheart was England's most famous crusading King but Edward I also went on crusade before he became king. The Crusades led to the formation of military orders such as the Knights Templar, Knights Hospitaller and Teutonic Knights.
Our Crusader Knight’s Sword is perfect for knights of any of the Crusader orders and is one of the best available to buy in the UK. This 14th century arming sword has a light and well balanced and perfect for use with a shield. It features a hand forged blade, steel fittings and a leather wrapped grip. The well-made leather scabbard is decorated by an embossed shield featuring a crusader cross (which can be painted to reflect a particular crusading order). The Crusader Knight’s Sword has a blunt blade and is designed for display only. It is not suitable for contact re-enactment.
