OVERVIEW

Non Nobis, Domine, Non Nobis, Sed Nomini Tuo Ad Glorium
These iconic words engraved on the blade define this historic sword replica. The creed of the Knights Templar - Nothing for us, Lord, nothing for us but for the glory of thy name - marked their illustrious and sometimes infamous 200-year military influence. This magnificent sword named The Accolade would have been a sword worthy of the Grand Master to knight a loyal member into this holy order.

The best metalsmiths from Windlass Steelcrafts have spent hours on each blade, hand forging the high carbon steel for optimal balance, quickness, and durability. The pommel features a highly detailed Templar coin on each side with Latin inscription and the symbols that have grown synonymous with the Templar Order, while the grip is hand-wrapped with genuine leather with a wire over-wrap.

The sword includes a custom, matching wooden scabbard covered in top-grain, heavy-duty dark brown leather and a matching period belt with solid metal fittings. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts and comes factory sharp.

Elegant and Historic
I purchased this for our son for his HS graduation.  I thought it appropriate for a young man entering into the world....or at least college.   He loved it.  I was so pleased with the quality and with the reaction received by our son.  He proudly displays it in his room.  I think the history of what it represents also has made an impact on him.  Not cheap but well worth the investment.

Best experience ever!
Top notch professionals working here. We needed the Knights Templar Accolade Sword for my grandsons wedding. The sword was on back order with a minimum 4-6 week wait.  We had exactly 4 weeks before the wedding. I called Atlanta Cutlery and Mia was so helpful and made every inquiry to get our sword to us on time. We are now 13 days away from the wedding and we received the sword yesterday. We could not have been more pleased and grateful. We presented to our son so he could used to it before the wedding. The sword was beautifully well made as well as the scabbard. Thank you so much for taking the time to help us and making sure my grandson’s wedding day was complete.

Great Sword... but a Warning..
Great Sword!! I would recommend this piece to anyone.....but with a BIG WARNING. Maybe mine was just a bad batch, I don't know. But the POMMEL and the CROSSGUARD are BRASS. They are only plated with the silverish steel color. Now I take very good care of my collection, which is quite large so it can be quite the task at times. I am most certainly not trying to brag, and I am most definitely not rich lol. I just have a deep seeded fascination with military history, and the beauty and craftsmanship of a nice blade be it an Egyptian Khopesh, a Roman Gladius, a German Greatsword, or any of the beautiful Sabers used to help carve out the New World. Now out of my collection 17 are Windlass Blades, save for the Battlecry Buckler and the Battlecry Fiore' Warhammer, both of which are excellent! Especially the Hammer. An awesome grey/black Gambeson, Grey Huntingdon pants to match, Maille Gauntlets, my newest order was the Norman Tunic W/Belt, the Huntingdon Pants and an English Bowie. The Bowie was out of stock but I'm sure I will receive it in due time. The Visored Bascinet Helmet. Not to mention small nick-nacks, gifts for friends, etc. And I have to say I absolutely love everything I own from Windlass/MRL/ACC. For anybody that has been polite enough to read all of this so far I will throw you a secret, Windlass BEST SWORD.... ready?
"The European Sword by Windlass". Yep, pick one up if you don't believe me, if you can find one that is.
OK onto the bad part of this review. Like I said the Accolade Sword pommel and crossguard are made of brass and simply plated in a silvery metallic.. something.
Like I said I take very good care of my entire collection, I use Flitz on all of my swords or any other weapons or armor that may need it. I like the results I get from Flitz and it is also recommended by Windlass to use it, and they also carry it for sale I believe. Now unfortunately I was not aware of the brass pommel and crossguard on the Accolade and polished it like I would any of my swords. After wiping it away the pommel and guard were a blackish-gold color. So I waited awhile and tried again to see if I could get the original color back but to no avail. Awhile later I contacted customer service, and the lady was VERY NICE and apologized and told me exactly what to do. So I followed her instructions and took quite a few pictures of the sword and the pommel and crossguard, and emailed them to the address she gave me. I believe it was Windlass or MRL Tech/Info, I will dig into my address book and see. Well that was a couple months ago and still no word from them nothing. Now just like everyone else out there I am a busy person, and the Accolade is part of a large collection. I'm just really dissapointed that MRL would drop the ball on this one, especially with the Accolade being one of their premier swords. SO, do I recommend this sword? ABSOLUTELY!
Just keep any kind of abrasive cleaner or polish AWAY FROM IT.
Now I love MRL, and will keep buying their products, in fact their new Knights Templar sword really caught my eye. Just really dissapointed in a company I have been purchasing from for 10 plus years. Anyways just heed my warning and you will love this sword.

Beautiful Sword and Highly Accurate
Beautiful blade with superb craftmanship!! The blade was perfect! Super sharp and oiled to perfection! The leather was if the highest quality and the handle fit perfect in my big hand. I highly recommend it and it was almost perfectly accurate from the time. I can't wait to wear it at my wedding!

Amazing
The detail and craftsmanship of this sword are incredible.  I love this, and with a full tang amd sharpened blade, I'm rather sure I could actually use this weapon.  It's a nice combination between looking decorative but also being usable.

My first sword and I am pleased with it.
This is my first sword as I am a firearms guy. The quality is very good and balance not bad. I do have to say that most sights including MR had this sword lited as backordered with ant eta of March. I received it from MR in just a few days! I know how to clean and protect firearms so hopefully I can learn to clean protect and preserve this sword. G-Lo Florida

Beautiful Sword and Fast Shipping!
I found the best price on this sword here on Museum Replicas during their 900 Anniversary of the Templars Sale. Upon ordering it did state back ordered with ETA of late Feb or Early March. I was very surprised when I got an alert of a Priority Mail Package from my USPS account on Jan 21st. It was my sword! Super fast shipping and very well packaged/protected. I am new to long blades and I am very happy with this one being my first. The only thing I would change is for the scabbard to secure the blade at least a bit better so that it doesn't fit so loosely. Other than that I have no complaints. Thank you Museum Replicas and Atlanta Cutlery for your fast shipping of my  Accolade Sword of the Knights Templar.

DENNIS
Up-date of review of 2016, the sword is still in excellent condition, ages very, very, well, assuming it is maintained as RECOMMENDED, as well the leather works that came with it. If you aren't sure about what to do, DON'T use any part of the sword to learn on. Even something as simple as cleaning/polishing, if done incorrectly,, can make "matters worse.". Seek "professional advice" about the care of ALL parts, if you have concerns. Be less concerned about your "EGO" by asking or admitting advice is needed. Over half a century I've learned that asking for help is far better than damaging your investment by not asking.

Awesome sword to behold; Does not age well...
Hello all, bought this sword within hours of receiving the MRL catalog it debuted in. I believe it was on page 1 or 2, picked up the phone and as always the ACC gentleman on the other end was "aces" taking my order. The oxblood grip with wire wrap is excellent, as is the flawless blade with inlay. A tiny bit blade heavy however I train with weapons (normally swords) 3 evenings a week. So no complaints there. The belt scabbard is seriously heavy duty leather BIG bonus. Very sharp edges! I ran a fine ceramic rod over the edges to polish any burrs away and wow! As with almost any sword you are going to feel the tang vibrate inside the handle when cutting mats. The reason I gave it 4/5 stars are as follows. The pommel is (was) beautiful. I take immaculate care of all my blades with Flitz, which is what MRL and ACC sells and reccomends. I use it on all 19 of my blades (12 are MRL/ACC) with excellent results..... except this one. It made the colors on the pommel run and gave the rest of the pommel an un-appealing grey/black color, which is a shame as the pommel was one of my main attractions to the sword. Also the crossguard took on a totally bronze color which keeps me busy keeping the greenish patina away. These things have made me hesitant to buy the new matching dagger which looks quite nice.
Would I buy the Accolade again? Yes!
However I would send it to MRL/ACC for cleaning and upkeep.
Now, in their defense I have not yet until now, brought these 2 problems to MRL/ACC's attention. And once again I must point out they're EXCELLENT staff. Perhaps they will take care of me? Also I did not receive reward points for the Accolade. Although it was a couple years ago $375 is not exactly a drop in the bucket (to me anyways). SO,,,,,,,,,,,
If you like the sword, definitely pick it up! Just be careful with the pommel and crossguard and you will have a functional heirloom in the family indefinitely!
