This is the Coronation Sword for The Kings of Bohemia, made in the 10th Century. The blade is made of iron and is around 3.5 feet long (very close to Longsword classification). A plain roundel/pommel is attached to the end. A simple cloth and wire covering was applied to the handle. It's uniqueness is in the cross shaped design cut into the blade. It's general appearance is one of a war sword and less of a State sword. The Sword was purportedly used by King Wenceslas. It is currently displayed at St. Vitus Cathedral, Prague.
