Knights Templar Sword with Sheath, Battle-Ready (Practical Blunt)
This beautiful Templar sword features a hardened spring steel blade which was tempered to a Rockwell hardness of approx. 48-50 HRC and is adorned with three crosses pattée. It is full-tanged and riveted to the pommel. The distinctive broad fuller extends almost to the blade's point, which not only makes for high flexibility, but also reduces the one-handed knightly sword's weight.
The cross guard is forged out of steel and bears the engraved Latin inscription IN HOC SIGNO VINCES (Engl.: In this sign, you will conquer). This phrase, which is said to have appeared in the sky in the shape of a cross to the first Christian Roman emperor Constantine the Great during the battle against Maxentius (312 A.D.), is nowadays the motto of the American Masonic order of the Knights Templar.
The leather-wrapped wooden grip is capped with a flat, disc-shaped steel pommel (or wheel pommel) engraved on both sides with a Templar cross motif. The gorgeous scabbard with wooden core is covered in leather and comes complete with a carrying belt wound around it.
The blade's blunt, 2 mm thick edges and rounded tip make this arming sword ideal for combat reenactment, stage fighting or sparring.

The Swedish company SPQR offers a wide range of historical replicas. SPQR stands for Senatus Populusque Romanus (Engl. The Senate an People of Rome) and is a fitting name for a company specialized in the reproduction of artefacts reaching from the Roman era to the Renaissance period. SPQR has committed itself to making high-quality reenactment and battle-ready products available at affordable prices. The entire product line is made to historical specifications.

Our swords referred to as battle-ready or practical are designed to suit the needs of historical re-enactment / stage fighting and to practice swordplay. The extremely brutal impact of cutting edge against cutting edge (or any other hard object) cannot be considered an appropriate use of these swords and may eventually lead to the breaking of the blade. The warranty we offer in such a case only covers material defects (e.g. hairline cracks in the blade or processing faults). It does not apply to damages resulting from a destructive or inappropriate handling of these swords. Please also bear in mind that a practical sword is basically and essentially an item subject to wear and tear.
