Hospitaller Sword of Malta

Named for the Great Siege of Malta which took place in 1565 when the Ottoman Empire invaded the island held by the Knights Hospitaller (who were also known as the Sovereign Order of Saint John of Jerusalem of Rhodes and of Malta; or, The Knights of Malta; or, The Knights of Rhodes; and/or The Chevaliers of Malta). The Knights (and all of their different names), together with 2,000 footsoldiers, won one of the bloodiest and most fiercely contested sieges in history.

This magnificent sword features a fully tempered diamond cross section high carbon steel blade, a steel pommel with a deeply carved Maltese Cross, and a solid steel crossguard. The grooved wood grip is covered in stitched leather hand rubbed to a deep luster. The scabbard is wood covered in thick leather to match the swords's grip and fittings.
