St. Maurice, also known as Mauritius, was the leader of the legendary Roman Theban Legion during the 3rd century. This 13th C. Sword of St. Maurice venerates him and his actions, which made him the patron saint of soldiers, knights, and warriors of all sorts. According to history, Maurice refused a direct command for his Emperor, demanding that he venerate the Roman gods – a sacrilege to Maurice and his legion, who were all Christian. This sword echoes the look of a the classic knights arming sword, featuring a hand crafted steel blade with a wide fuller down its spine and straight edges that taper to a fine, piercing point at the tip. Ornate symbols are emblazoned on the sword at the waist, near the guard, while the cast-steel concave guard furthers its look and form as a classic medieval sword. The grip is wrapped entirely in leather, to provide a secure and comfortable hold, and the hilt is finished with a nut style pommel, adding a unique touch of variant style to the blades overall design. Included with the sword is a wood scabbard, bound in leather, to make the sword easy to keep and carry. With this 13th C. Sword of St. Maurice, you can celebrate the patron saint of knights, soldiers, and warriors the world over, while also arming yourself with a sword that any knight would gladly have wielded, too.
