Wonderful 19th century Knights Templar sword, ornate scabbards, and hilt, fully engraved blade. Custom leather case. Sword and case named to original owner, Charles J. Getz. The Templar Order was established in 1118 to ensure the custody of the Holy places and to protect the pilgrimage routes. The Knights Templar is the final order joined in the York Rite. This body is modeled on the historical Knights Templar to carry on the spirit of their organization. The sword depicts a crowned Passion Cross inscribed with "In Hoc Signo Vinces", a Latin rendition of a Greek phrase meaning "in this sign you will conquer. The pommel is a knight's helm with a chain guard.
Circa 19th Century
Sword: 36 ½" x 1" Case: 37 1/2" x 7" at its widest.
