Sword of Altair
The Sword of Altaïr was the sword wielded by Altaïr Ibn-La’Ahad through much of his life as an Assassin in the first instalment of the Assassin’s Creed game series.
The sword was forged from a smooth, silver metal, with its cross guard shaped like an eagle’s wings, and the pommel in the motif of an eagle’s head. Along with this, the sword’s hilt was wrapped in strong, dark brown leather for gripping, and was also stored in a leather scabbard, although this was only used by Masyaf guards and Altaïr himself.
During the Renaissance in Italy and Constantinople, the Assassin, Ezio Auditore da Firenze, also made use of the weapon.
