The Poor Fellow-Soldiers of Christ and of the Temple of Solomon, better known as the Templars, was a clerical knight order that was founded in 1096, at the end of the First Crusade, to guarantee all pilgrims a safe journey to Jerusalem. The Knight Templars were the best trained soldiers of the crusades and the non-fighting members of the order founded an enormous banking system all over Europe and built massive forts.
This decorative templar sword has a carbon steel blade with a fuller. The grip is made of wood and covered with braided leather. The sword has a massive cross-guard and an octagonal pommel of brass. Both the cross-guard and the pommel are decorated with red enameled crosses. The sword is delivered including a matching scabbard.
Hughes de Payens was one of the founders of the Knight Templars and its first grand master. Together with Bernard of Clairvaux he composed the rules of the order and led it for twenty years, until his death in 1136.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.
Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
