A sword of truly royal quality. This replicates the coronation sword of the Holy Roman Emperor, used from the 10th century to 1918. The original is one of the best surviving swords of this type. This sword was made for its royal duties and has been preserved in a nearly pristine state for its entire life. The engraving was added, a common practice, for the coronation of Otto IV in 1198. It consists of the arms of the empire on the pommel and the inscriptions Christus Vincit, Christus Reinat, Christus Imperat, a common war cry of the Third Crusade, on the guard. The grip is hardwood bound in twisted wire. The blade has a fuller which runs nearly its full length.
