The British Isles have long been steeped in a rich heritage of ceremony and tradition, and there are few artefacts that evoke this culture so strongly as the ceremonial sword.

A ceremonial sword is used to display power or authority, although descended from swords used in actual combat, their aim is to show status and be an impressive sight. Similarly the scabbard is decorated to ensure the sword is noticed, with a very outward and visible display.
This is THE reference work on the subject and a must for all who have an interest in both edged weaponry,and of pageantry.
