King Richard I of England, known as “Coeur de Lion”, the Lionheart, was the greatest leader of the Third Crusades and a master battlefield tactician. This magnificent sword, made by the expert bladesmiths of Windlass Steelcrafts, is a testimony to this stalwart leader. The hand forged, 1065 high carbon steel blade is etched with his Latin motto, "Dieu et mon droit" meaning “God and My Right.” The lavish pommel, crossguard and grip decorations have been plated in 24 Karat gold with faux rubies set in the eyes of the lion on the pommel. A soft black leather wrapping finishes this sturdy grip. This stunning sword includes a matching, period-accurate wooden scabbard, again covered in soft, black leather and adorned with gold-platted fittings of lions and crosses; befitting the Lion of the Crusades. Dual sets of buckled long-belts are attached.
