12th century Templar Sword

Original found in the Schweizerishches Landesmuseum, Zurich.
Type XIIIa;

Classified as type XIIIa, this is one of the most significant two handed swords of the medieval period. During the Middle Ages, armor was increasingly fortified to protect against the weapons of the period. To counter the ever increasing plated armor, swords too were further developed. The single-handed cutting swords of previous centuries were gradually replaced by larger cutting swords that were used in a two-handed fashion. Numerous variations are found throughout the European continent, establishing a general conformity and indicating a clear pattern of influence among smiths of the time. Variations are found in the Royal Armoury of Turin, in the Louvre of Paris, in the Imperial Treasury of Vienna, in the Royal Armoury of Madrid and in the Hermitage, Petrograd.

These two handed battle ready swords (12th century medieval sword) delivered powerful shearing cuts, and while large in size, they were still dynamic and responsive in their handling qualities.

Customer Feedback about the 12th Century Medieval Sword:

"Greetings, My new Darksword Two Handed Templar arrived today and I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with it. The craftsmanship is evident throughout. There"s an Irish Hospitallers sword in our family, but not being the eldest son, it wasn"t passed to me. This sword is a very close representation of that one, including the simplicity, length and heft. Anyhow, I"m very pleased and will not hesitate to order from Darksword again."

- Ian Bennett, USA.

"I received my sword last evening and it has exceeded my already high expectations. It is pristine and wonderful. I will acquire all my future blades from Darksword. Feel free to use me as a reference. Very respectfully, William Edward Graf v. Ettendorf-ReBrook".
