The Knights Hospitaller began as a Benedictine nursing Order founded in the 11th century. Originally based in the Holy Land, it soon became a militant Christian Chivalric Order under its own charter, and was charged with the care and defence of pilgrims. The knights built and manned a hospital at Jerusalem for pilgrims in A. D. 1042. Following the loss of Christian territory in the Holy Land, the Order operated from Rhodes, of which it was sovereign, and later from Malta as a vassal. The medieval Order came to an end following its ejection from Malta by Napoleon.

Our Hospitaller is loosely based on a sword in the Royal Armoury at Leeds and is a classic sword for a mounted knight of the Crusading era.

It has a long narrow blade with edges running almost parallel for about two-thirds of the blade’s length. The fuller is narrow, often shallow and ruins for four-fifths of the blade length. The Hospitaller has a long and handsome blade with a short point section, clearly dedicated to the cut. The grip is of moderate length, making this a single hand sword despite its great size.

The Hospitaller has a hand-ground high carbon steel blade that is tempered for flexibility and edge retention. The crossguard and pommel are cast from mild steel. The grip is stabilized birch wood, cord-wrapped and fitted over with tight leather.

The sword grip comes in a selection of colors, please select an option below.
