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.

Beautiful
I couldn't be happier with this sword. It feels great and sturdy in the hand. Well balanced and light. This blade is both functional and gorgeous to look at. You won't be disappointed.

Time improves everything
This is the best sword I have from MRL / Windlass. I waited to do a review because  there have been some complaints by other reviewers about the silver colored guard and pommel not aging well. I personally like the aging patina it has taken on. It now looks more like a vintage sword.

Very happy with the Accolade Sword
This purchase was my first ever sword. I had been wanting a "battle ready" sword for a long time that coincided with the Knights Templar. When I came across this sword I did what I'm sure many of you did, I researched as much as I could about it before buying. When I received it I was like a kid again receiving my first BB-gun. I was ecstatic. The sword was packaged securely and had plenty of protective packing grease on the blade, which wiped off very easily. The materials of the entire sword are without question, of very high quality. My only complaint would be with the scabbard. Two of the leather trim pieces were broken off. One near the opening of the scabbard. One at the bottom of the scabbard. They were easily glued back into place without much fuss. Also, I had to add more buckle holes to get the belt to fit my waist. These are very minor issues that do not take away from giving this sword a full "5 star" rating however. I would recommend this sword to anyone. Matter of fact, I loved this sword so much, I recently placed an order for the "Faithkeeper" sword! I can't wait till it's back in stock and sent my way.

Awesome Sword and Service
I want to give both MRL and the Accolade Sword the highest possible rating.  Shipping was FAST!  Communication was timely.  the sword is exactly as represented. The scabbard and double belt exceeded my expectations. I could go on, but let it suffice to say, you will not be disappointed.

I plan to use this sword both as a display and in Templar Costume.

A Crown Jewel
Easily the most attractive and eye-catching sword in my collection.  As is the norm with my Museum Replicas purchases, this one is well made, sturdy, and has a nice balance when handling.  I can't imagine anyone not being happy with this one - HIGHLY recommended!!

Nice S we ord
I only have one real complaint. The handle is a single piece of leather wrapped around the tang and then wrapped with silver wire. On mine there is a noticeable ridge where the leather meets that gets very uncomfortable over time unless I'm wearing a glove. Now for the good stuff! The blade is clearly hand forged and finished with all the requisite little waves and flaws only a true hand forged blade would have. Balance is great - just in front of the guard, came nicely servicable sharp. Scabbard and belt are very nice and the little crosses look like they've been out in the field of combat a few times. Over all a very nice match with the dagger. Now I just need a suit of mail and helmet!

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.
