Masonic Sword

The Freemasons of the 18th and 19th centuries gave the  Masonic Sword as an award of rank and merit. The engravings on the sword and scabbard displayed the symbols of the movement. This replica by Denix faithfully reproduces the detail of a Masonic sword of the period. The blade is cast from a metal alloy that cannot be sharpened, making it safe for display in family environments.

Throughout history, as an instrument of justice, truth, equality and firmness, swords have been used at every great event and have become imbued with great symbolism. For this reason, freemasons use swords in all their ceremonies.

Starting from the tradition of freemason builders harking back to the “mediaeval masons and architects”, freemasonry pursues the personal self-construction of the individual.This unique Freemason Masonic Sword contains a great many of the symbols used in the craft, particularly the compass and set square, the plumb line and the hammer, the sacred book and the eye of the Supreme Being, and the five-pointed star inscribed with the capital “G” of the Great Architect.

The Freemasonry Masonic Sword by Marto of Toledo Spain has a tempered stainless steel blade. The hilt is cast metal with 24K Gold plating with Silver plated inlaids depicting symbols of the masonic tradition. The handgrip is covered in red velvet, ornated with 24K Gold plated metal. The disk shaped pommel frames a five pointed star interwined with a “G”.This is a high quality product made in Toledo Spain by Marto which you can proudly display with honor.

It begins with the divesting of all minerals and metals such as Masonic gavels – that baggage in our lives that we accumulated before we were introduced to Masonic thought and Masonic emotion.  As Shakespeare has stated, “Think well, act well, and live well.”  If you do, you will have discovered the true essence of Freemasonry.

The forms and ceremonies used by the Essenes were symbolical, just as they are today in Freemasonry.  According to Philo, they had four degrees; were Jews by birth; and held a greater affection for each other than was true of members of any other sect.  Before there was a Christian religion, they fulfilled the Christian law, “Love one another.”  They despised riches and made certain that no single member had more material goods than any other member, all of which were held in common.

Their piety toward the one living God was without compare, which they ritualized in mysterious ceremonies and initiations about which very little is known.  However, like Freemasonry, it was within the symbolism of those ceremonies that the hidden mysteries could be revealed.

One famous Masonic gavels owner writer has gone farther and asserted that the origins of Freemasonry will never be traced, because that origin is veiled in superphysical mystery.  Whether or not we will ever know the complete truth about Freemasonry’s origin, one may begin the effort by pulling that veil aside and studying the diverse symbols of the Craft, as well as the various works of art created from the depths of man’s soul and spirit.

What is it that enables men to overcome fear?  The heroic efforts of the soldiers at Iwo Jima, or those who stormed the cliffs at  the Normandy invasion stand out to generations as examples of unflinching bravery.  To the military man the answer is clear – he fights because of his comrades in arms.  But, why do we resist fear?  Most of us are not in combat and thus not at war.  The answer is that we have so conditioned our faith and our minds that we know that we, like all men, will die.

Many select slavery and yield. Masonic Apron Cases pose as symbols for higher truth. Others believe that freedom is a matter of choice and therefore choose to act free, even though they may be in a horrendous state of fear.  Man is but of little time here on earth.  Yet, his spirit lives forever.  We ought not to care so much about our welfare here on earth as to sacrifice the great gift of freedom God has given us.
