Historical Period:- There are tales of Alexandria's lost glories. Many of those stories speak of the libraries; there was also a treasury of weapons, starting around 1367. Captured weapons and armour were stored there, as curiousities and valued prizes.
During the Crusades, while Europeans were attempting to re-gain access to Jerusalem, many wealthy and well-provisioned soldiers and knights crossed the land near the Mediteranean Sea to do battle. Some lost their lives, and all their gear. The metal bits and pieces were a marvel to the residents, and were carefully stored.
Later, some of these pieces that had been moved to Alexandria were given as bond on treaties with other nations. They were often inscribed with dates or names in the script of the receiving nation.

Inspiration:- The Finger Guard Hilt Milanese Sword is a reproduction of the straight two edged sword, dated 1432, in The Royal Armouries, Leeds, UK. This sword, one the most famous swords from Alexandria, is representative of the Oakesott Type XIX, with these defining characteristics: the parallel edges of the blade, hexagonal blade cross-section, and short ricasso.
