This sword will be made in a very limited run. We are calling it the Sword of Malta, named for the battle in which the Knights of St John turned back a huge Ottoman flotilla.
This magnificent sword features a steel pommel with a deeply carved Cross of the Brotherhood, which symbolized their devotion and gave a point of prayer to the embattled soldiers, and a solid steel crossguard.
The hand forged, high carbon steel blade is very well balanced for a cut, and stiff for a solid thrust.
The grip is grooved wood and covered in genuine stitched leather which is hand rubbed to a deep luster.
The scabbard features a custom wood sheath covered in thick leather to match the grip with steel fittings, allowing the sword to hand at a rakish angle, which was the fashion of the day.
Made by Windlass Steelcrafts®, this sword can be sharpened for additional fee.
