Are we knights?' 'Do you want to be?' Remember National Treasure when young Benjamin Gates finds grandpa's Knight Templar sword in the attic? When the Civil War ended, military uniform and sword suppliers went looking for new business, and men returning home from the war sought the camaraderie and the trappings of military life. Thus, the fraternal sword came to be a treasured possession of men across the US, from the 1860's up through today. Some were plain, some were ornate, but all were the symbol of modern knighthood, and a tradition of honor and chivalry.
This Masonic Knights Templar sword is exactingly reproduced from originals and is one of the most beautiful. Intricately carved, solid metal fittings plated in rich 24K gold and red enamel inlay. All the important symbols are finely reproduced, from the knightly helmet pommel to the Maltese cross and Cross of Life (cross in crown) cross guard. Emperor Constantine and many other intricate carvings also adorn this significant piece. Highly polished stainless steel scabbard and blade with etching in gold. This is truly a magnificent piece and a must for any historian of fraternities, knights or swords. White ABS grip with traditional black scrimshaw. Very few are produced each year.
