The modern masonic swords come from the 18th cent court swords : they are relatively small and light, to allow the wearer to be at ease when in society. The main difference comes from the decorations, which show the typical masonic patterns, such as the compass, for example. The hilt always remembers a cross.
Hilt made of cast brass, steel blade, scabbard made of blackened iron with brass brackets.
