As legend goes, upon landing on the shores of England for the first time William fell flat on his face. Upon rising, he turned and said, “I have already grasped my Kingdom.” The straight hilt has been inscribed with this phrase in Latin: Jam Accepisse Regnum. Finally, the sturdy wooden grip has been covered in a deep, blood red leather and has been wound with a braided silver wire. Accompanying this fine blade is a wooden scabbard, covered in a brown leather and embossed with the cross of the Conqueror. A matching blood red belt with period ties is attached.
The scabbards are made exactly to the size of the blade. Please select a scabbard you like.
