The Arms & Armor St. Maurice Sword replicates the famous coronation sword used to begin the reign of the Holy Roman Emperors from the 10th century to 1918. It has a long, sharp blade of 6150 high carbon steel that has been tempered to possess a hardness of 50 HRC. The crossguard and pommel are steel and the hardwood grip is overlaid with twisted and inlaid steel wire.

The inscriptions on the crossguard reads: ‘’Christus Vincit ‘’Christus Reinat’’ and ‘’Christus Imperat’’ (‘’Christ Conquers, Christ Reigns’’ and ‘’Christ Commands’’). The pommel.

The sword comes with a light brown leather scabbard with a stitched back seam.

There are several swords attributed to St. Maurice, a popular saint in the medieval period. It is no surprise that both the Turin St. Maurice sword the one in Vienna (the one replicated here) are both large swords; a powerful figure such as St. Maurice would have wielded a mighty blade. The one in Vienna has been kept in great condition due to its importance in the cermonial coronation of the Holy Roman Emperors. Its engraving was added for the coronation of Otto IV in 1198.

Not simply a ceremonial sword, the Vienna Sword of St. Maurice has a large blade that would have made it a good hacking sword when wielded on horseback due to its long blade reach. It is a blade with presence and of a type that one would expect a professional warrior to wield.
