This Templar Axe is identified as such by the incision of the cross into the blade. Knights, whether monastic or secular, when committed to Crusade would put the form of the cross in various ways to their armor and weapons. When taking up the oath to Crusade, a Crusader would often have the cross sewn onto his clothing, a sign of his pledge to be worn until the conclusion of the Crusade. For many knights, their cruciform hilted swords were a symbol unto itself. It would be no surprise that the cross, in its various forms would find itself etched into the various arms and armor of the Crusaders, for even the Church of the Holy Sepulchre itself in Jerusalem, one of the primary sites the Crusaders sought to wrest from Muslim hands, has numerous crosses ‘’graffitied’’ into its stones by the Crusaders.

This Templar War Axe by Legacy Arms is of a size that allows it to be wielded two-handed or one handed. The head with its blade and armor-piercing pick is of high carbon steel and it is pinned to a hardwood shaft. A wrapped leather grip is held in place by metal pins. The shaft and the leather have both been painted. A leather wrist strap is integrated into the shaft. The axe head is sharpened.
