Dan,
Do you have a direct question? I suspect you are interested in the background/meaning of the type of swords shown in your picture

Maybe one of our site members might be more knowledgable in this area?

Alan,

Thanks for your response, but I don't really have a question. Why the particular type of swords were chosen is more than likely because of their martial implication, much like the crusader sword. I think it looks better than a sabre, frankly.

Cheers,
Dan.
