The Deepeeka Sword of St. Maurice is based on a fine original which was once the coronation sword for the Holy Roman Emperors and is still a part of the Imperial Treasury in Vienna. This sword was used for over 700 years as the coronation sword for the Emperors and last performed this duty for Emperor Karl of Austria as king of Hungary in 1916. Deepeeka’s recreation has a handforged blade of C60 high carbon steel with a tempered hardness of 48-52 Hrc. Like the original, it is a large and long-bladed sword of a type that was intended for a professional, knightly warrior.
The blade is robustly mounted into the hilt with a solid peen over the pommel. Its guard and pommel are antiqued brass and the wooden grip is tightly bound in wrapped brass wire surmounted by intricately knotted brass knotwork ferrules. The crossguard is magnificently detailed with inscription on both sides which reads: Christus Vincit Christus Reinat and Christus Imperat (Christ Conquers, Christ Reigns and Christ Commands). The matching scabbard is skillfully crafted from wood and wrapped in tightly stitched high quality vegetable tanned leather which is dyed ochre in hue. Included are two belt loops so that it can be worn with your own sword belt.
