This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

This Crusader style sword is adorned with the Cross and the Red Nurit flower of Galilee - both a reference to Tancred de Hauteville - a Sicilian-Norman prince who ''took the cross'' in 1096, he won the Principality of Galilee after the capture of Jerusalem in the First Crusade. His uncle, the famed crusader Bohemond, would later be imprisoned by the Turks and would eventually return to Europe. In his absences, he left Tancred as regent of the Crusader state of Antioch. Present at most of the major battles of the first Crusade, Tancred has had a host of stories survive attesting to his chivalrous manner, such as his efforts to spare hundreds of Muslims hiding in a mosque during the capture of Jerusalem, or the story of his opposition to Baldwin to loot the Christian population of Tarsus.

This sword, made by Windlass, is inspired by Tancred and the cruciform sword he might have wielded as Prince of Galilee. Wide-bladed with a straight crossguard, the sword is in a likeness to the Cross itself that Tancred and the Crusaders pledged their service upon. The blade is made of high carbon steel. The crossguard and pommel has an aged finish. The wooden grip is covered with stitched brown leather surmounted by brass ferrules. The scabbard is brown suede leather with a steel chape and has an integrated sword belt of brown leather.
