A Warrior’s Inheritance
San Maurizio is an iconic sword attributed to Saint Maurice, a famous roman warrior and martyr. The sword was dated to the 13th c. and preserved in the Abbaye de Saint-Maurice d’Agaune or Saint-Maurice-en-Valais in Switzerland, until the end of 16th century when the Prince of Savoy transferred it in Turin. San Maurizio, with its parallel profile taper, the fullered section and the brazil nut pommel is an almost accurate reconstruction of the original sword: the scabbard was also crafted after a careful analysis of the structure and construction materials and methods. It was made in a left-handed version due to customer’s request.
