The Crusades created a tumultuous period when Western armies, fired with the crusading spirit, wrestled most of the Holy Land from the Moslems. Holding it was a different matter, and the Crusaders never again match their initial success. The West, still somewhat barbaric, learned a great deal from their opponents, bringing back new knowledge from their travels. (Some historians believe the Crusades helped encourage a thirst for exploration among Europeans that helped foment the discovering of America.) This decorative sword blade is flat, with two narrow fullers. The pommel is steel, with a cross deeply engraved on its face surrounded by brass rivets. 440 Stainless steel. 40" overall. Includes wood plaque.
