Throughout history, as an instrument of justice, truth, equality and firmness, swords have been used at every great event and have become imbued with great symbolism. For this reason, freemasons use swords in all their ceremonies.
FREEMASONRY: "a philanthropic, philosophic and forward-looking institution intended to achieve an understanding of truth, the study of ethics and the practice of solidarity, working for the material and moral improvement of humanity, it is compatible with any religious or esoteric faith which does not annul the freedom of individuals". Starting from the tradition of freemason builders harking back to the
"mediaeval masons and architects", freemasonry pursues the personal self-construction of the individual.
This unique FREEMASON SWORD contains a great many of the symbols used in the craft, particularly the compass and set square, the plumb line and the hammer, the sacred book and the eye of the Supreme Being, and the five-pointed star inscribed in the capital "G" of the Great Architect.
"WHAT YOU MAKE MAKES YOU"
The meaning of the masonic symbols
The Square symbolizes things of the earth, and it also symbolizes honor, integrity, truthfulness, and the other ways we should relate to this world and the people in it. The Compasses symbolize things of the spirit, and the importance of a good and well-developed spriritual life, and also the importance of self control - of keeping ourselves within bounds. The G stands for Geometry, the science which the ancients believed most revealed the glory of God and His works in the heavens, and it also stands for God, Who must be at the center of all our thoughts and of all our efforts.
