Templar Commander Sword, 13thC
Templar Commander Sword, 13th century, inspired by original examples and historical sources.
Dark brown grip color.
This is a sword of a classic 13th century type with some interesting additions, inspired by original swords and historical sources. The Pommel is massive, which adds mass to the sword, but at the same time provides good balance and good handling. The crossguard is straight with an octagonal cross-section. The blade has a classic, 13th-century type but also has a ridge and a rather spiky tip. This shape of the tip is adapted to thrusting, more than previous types, and at the same time stiffens the blade. This rather massive sword is good for fighting an armored opponent, and is also an innovation of sorts in response to the improvements in armor that were taking place in the 13th century. The handle has additional straps and studs that allow for a better grip while adding splendor to the sword. The pommel has engraved emblems of the Templars: a temple and two knights on one horse. This is a kind of tribute and a reference to the symbolism of the order, because we do not have this exact pommel design in museums, and we can only speculate about whether a given sword belongs to the Templar. However, the drawing and lettering were faithfully adapted from seals and other patterns, so they are in the spirit of the era.
Overall, the selection of details and form creates a unique sword with historical details, while being a functional and elegant weapon of its time.
