Product Description

Produced in the Philippines, their swords have been refined over the years with a constant and continuing process of improvement that has lightened the blades to within historically accurate tolerances yet maintained an overall level of durability that typically greatly surpasses the originals they are based upon.

DESCRIPTION:

Knights Templar or the Order of the Temple (French: Ordre du Temple or Templiers), were among the most famous of the Western Christian military orders. The organization existed for approximately two centuries in the Middle Ages. It was founded in the aftermath of the First Crusade of 1096, to ensure the safety of the many Europeans who made the pilgrimage to Jerusalem after its conquest.


Officially endorsed by the Roman Catholic Church in 1129, the Order became a favored charity across Europe and grew rapidly in membership and power. Templar knights in their distinctive white mantles with Red Cross were among the best fighting units of the Crusades. Non-combatant members of the Order managed a large economic infrastructure throughout Christendom, inventing or adapting many financial techniques that were an early form of banking, and building many fortifications across Europe and the Holy Land.

Special Note:

The Templars' success was tied closely to the Crusades; when the Crusaders suffered defeat and lost the Holy Land, support for the Order faded. Rumors about the Templars' secret initiation ceremony created mistrust, and King Philip IV of France, deeply in debt to the Order, began pressuring Pope Clement V to take action. In 1307, King Philip had many of the Order's members in France arrested, tortured into giving false confessions, and burned at the stake. In 1312, Pope Clement V, under continuing pressure from King Philip, disbanded the Order. The abrupt disappearance of a major part of the European infrastructure gave rise to speculation and legends, which have kept the "Templar" name alive until the present.

    The Art of Medieval Style Sword Making

    The forging of a European / Medieval sword is a subtle and careful process, an art that has developed over the centuries as much in response to stylistic and aesthetic considerations as to technical improvements.


    There was a smith to forge the rough shape, often a second smith (apprentice) to fold the metal, a specialist polisher, and even a specialist for the edge itself. Before the blacksmith or sword smith actually starts hammering or heating the metal for a sword there is a lot of work to be done. The sword size, shape, properties, and metal composition all have to be decided upon. These factors determine the amount of metal, the temperatures of heating and the specific steps in the process that have to be completed.


    Blades were often forged with different profiles, different blade thicknesses, and varying amounts of grind. Some blades were made of a laminate construction, produced by folding the steel over and over then forge welding at each fold (resulting in layers). In this lamination method to refine and make the steel more homogenous it was folded and forges welded. The sword smith had to fold the bar of metal, resulting in a doubling of the layers and in the process blending the qualities of the various pieces of steel in the billet. The more the steel was folded the more homogeneous the metal in the blade became. The amount of folds would be determined by both the material and the final qualities the smith was looking for. One other way to combine smaller amounts of better steel into a larger useable billet was to create a piled structure where a few bars of refined steel were stacked together then welded as one and forged out into a blade shape without any further folding. But swords made by whatever means consisted essentially of careful combinations of softer iron with harder steel. There are many different methods for making a sword and the art has changed over the centuries as technologies, tools and the science of metallurgy has changed. But for the past five hundred years there has been one method that still stands as the most common.


    Today, swords are still being made by modern artisans; some pursue the traditional methods while others apply modern tools, techniques and materials to the craft. A great number of commercially available swords are being made in China with modern tools and materials employing traditional methods. Let's remember that steel-making was imported into Europe from China, via Korea. The steel used in the Chinese swords, called "chi-kang" (combined steel), was similar to pattern welding, and edges of it were often forge welded to a back of soft iron, or "jou thieh." In trying to copy the Chinese method, the European smiths paid much attention to the various properties of steel, and worked to combine them to produce an internal macro-structure that would provide a similar combination of hardness and toughness.


    About Legacy Arms / Generation 2

    Originally called Generation 2, and now Legacy Arms, this sword company was sold to Cas Iberia in 2013 by its owner and founder, Clyde Hollis.


    In the latter years of Clyde's direction the company collaborated with the late, great Hank Reinhardt and later Bruce Brookhart before the company was sold to Cas Iberia.


    • European and Fantasy Swords - Made from 5160 Spring Steel, their standard European and Fantasy Sword line are hand forged and fitted with high quality, 100% natural components and offer some exceptional value for money, though to protect their value a strictly enforced MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) is in force. Yet prices remain more or less the same over the years. Swords range from original fantasy designs to functional LoTR (Lord of the Rings) replicas, Ancient Roman swords and a variety of medieval arming, long and two handed swords.
    • Hank Reinhardt Collection - His final project and legacy to the sword industry, the Hank Reinhardt Collection is a series of swords based on actual antiques that were been made to the exacting specifications of the late Sword and Arms Historian, Hank Reinhardt. The originals have either been in Hanks own collection or have been reconstructed by sketches given to him by his personal friend, the late, great sword Scholar Ewart Oakeshott.
    • The Brookhardt Collection - Bruce A. Brookhardt previously worked as the primary sword designer for Museum Replicas Ltd in the 1990s, worked alongside Hank Reinhardt for 17 years, and in late 2012/early 2013 turned his considerable talents to designing a range of Teutonic and Templar themed swords for Legacy Arms. Swords from this line focus on being both historically accurate yet very strong.

    Generation 2 swords are made the old fashioned way, by blacksmith charcoal, an anvil and a lot of hard work. In fact, the only modern technology used is the occasional wooden lathe for the handles and a grinding wheel to shape the blade. The individual components, all of which do not include ANY synthetic materials in their construction, are made specifically for each piece ensuring a high level of conformity and a fit and finish rare in this price range. The blades of all Generation 2 swords are hardened by heating and then oil quenching, followed by their own proprietary tempering process.
