The Knights of St. John were both a religious and a military order. They were founded in 1048 A.D., around the time of the Crusades. These knights fought to defend the Christian religion and lands. They were loyal and entered difficult battlegrounds. The Beloved Disciple Saint John’s Sword of the Golden Knights is a definite eye turner. The sword has been equipped with a 440 stainless steel mirror polish blade with a double edge and a long central-ridge line on both sides. This Saint John sword has a beautiful ivory colored handle with a pommel mirroring a Knights Helmet. The guard is a well decorated piece with Red Cross and designs fit for a King. This ornamental sword comes equipped with a very detailed cross and shield design steel scabbard with Celtic style floral and vines. The scabbard that comes with this sword makes it a rare find, as most sword scabbards are wood or leather. This scabbard is made of high quality crafted metal with a antique gold finish. It also includes a hanging ring on both sides at the throat of the scabbard. This sword is intended for display purposes: not for actual combat use.
