In the middle ages, all Christians that made the long and dangerous journey to the Holy Land wore a shell as a symbol that they had made the ultimate pilgrimage. Many knights that had fought in the ongoing crusade took the symbol as well. This some-what crude period art shell appears on this swords pommel. The parts are brass, the grip is leather over wood, and the blade is a long cut and slash type from tempered 1095 high carbon steel. The scabbard is included. Note:
This is a one of a kind sample that did not made it into production.
