Sword with Crosses (ca. 1430)
This late cruciform sword bears five bold crosses on its blade. Legend tells us that the heroine Joan Of Arc bore such a sword during her campaigns in the Hundred Years Wars between England and France. This sword would have made an inspiring sight as it was carried forward at the head of an army. The parts are steel and the grip is wrapped in leather cord. Fully tempered high carbon blade.
