KNIGHTS of PYTHIAS TEMPLAR SWORD San Francisco Pasquale Ivory Grip
Charles Peterson Etched Blade Cast Hilt
Here we present a B. Pasquale Knights Templar Fraternal Order Sword, made circa the turn of the century, this one personalized to Charles Peterson. Every knight needs a sword with less ancient fraternal orders being no exception. The sword played, and still plays, an important role as a symbol of the power to destroy, as well as the power to protect, and dispense justice. They were a key part of dress and served as status symbols within the society. Most are quite decorative, if not utterly ornate.
This sword features a knight’s head on the pommel, archetypal of the swords employed by the Knights Templar and Knights of Pythias. It is etched/monogrammed “Charles Peterson”. It has an overall length of 36-1/4 inches and a 29 inch blade and a nickel scabbard.
The overall condition is good. Bright, etched bore. “CHARLES PETERSON” is signed on both the blade and scabbard. The hand guard has some wiggle. The casted metal parts on the scabbard and hilt have fine details and elaborate designs. Markings are legible. The scabbard is in very good shape throughout. This example is missing the chain guard.
