Sword of Malta
Circa 1400's - 1570's. 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 cross guard.
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. Perfect for any medieval outing. Don't forget to check out our Halloween shop for all the accessories, props, outfits, and decorations you'll need for a hauntingly fun Halloween.
