"Give Him the Sword of the King..." Collectible swords from movies, for display purposes. These swords come with display plaques, many have Certificates of Authenticity.
Swords were gradually replaced by guns as a man's weapon of choice, especially in Western civilizations. These blades are still revered by many as works of art, and traditional methods are still used to forge them. The hilt of a sword is its handle, consisting of a guard, or crossguard, grip (sometimes wrapped) and pommel (rounded end of hilt).
