This is a Horstmann Knights Templar sword. To avoid any confusion, this is not a medieval sword used by the Order of the Knights Templar. What you see here is a beautiful ceremonial sword used by a Masonic organization, probably in the 19th century. The Latin phrase “In Hoc Signo Vinces” is a classic Templar motto. It can be seen in the last image, along with the letters “K” and “T”. The photographs were taken and kindly submitted by Jo Anne Farrell. All images can be zoomed in.
