The sire De Joinville was a French knight known for his bravery and devotion to his king, St. Louis. During the 7th Crusade, he was attacked by a Saracen after having lost his lance. So the valiant De Joinville tucked this sword under his arm as you would a lance, charged, and slew his opponent. His valorous action inspired our choice of his name for this beautiful weapon.
