The cross on the pommel confirms it as a Templar Knight’s sword. The history of the Templars seems to indicate that the sword was thrown into the river when the Order of the Temple was dissolved by Edward II in 1314 . At the time, many Templars were executed or imprisoned, and in 1314 the Order's last grand master, Jacques de Molay, was burned at the stake. The embellishing of the pommel, with its decorative cross, was common among the Templars, giving clear indication as to the origins of the sword. This fourteenth century sword is forged from 5160 spring steel. The blade is satin polished and double tempered to a Rockwell hardness of 60, while the hilt is fitted with an Iron pommel and cross guard. The handle is made of wood, wrapped with antiqued brown leather.
