Grande épée de style médiéval, la lame vers 1300-1400 portant une croix apocryphe des Chevaliers de l'Ordre équestre du Saint-Sépulcre. A Great sword in the medieval style, the blabe circa 1300-1400 and bearing a spurious cross of the Knights of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre. With shortened broad blade coming to a reshaped point, the edges almost parallel over their full length, both sides cut with a narrow fuller an orb mark and a diagonal row of small crosses all inlaid in latten, incised with a large circular device involving an inner border of dog-tooth ornament encircling on one side traces of a central device (incomplete and illegible), on the other side a cross of the Order of the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre, and both of the circular devices inlaid in latten (the cross and its border reworked), later iron crosspiece, later octagonal wheel pommel engraved with gothic letters in the manner of a sacred contraction around the sides, inlaid with a brass roundel inscribed with further gothic letters on each face, and fitted with later grip. L. overall: 116.2 cm - L. blade: 87.3 cm - W.: 23.3 cm. The blade appears to correspond with Oakeshott's classification Type XIII. For a sword with a blade of similar type (for single-handed use) see THOMAS, Clive, "King of Emirs" - Pious donations of European swords to the Arsenal of Alexandria during the time of the Viceroy Sayf al-din Aristay, in the guide to the London Park Lane Arms Fair, March 2011, pp. 22-23, sword 1.2, figs 8-10, together with cross-sections A & B.
