Deus vult engraved on the blade

. . . in addition to my Joslyn and cartridge-belt I had a dagger and a sword from the citadel’s armoury — not one of their sickle-blades but a straight cross-hilted weapon with Deus vult engraved on the blade — a Crusader sword, bigod, and why not, for if it was seven hundred years out of date it was still in a Christian land.
