— Description, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

Almace (アルマス Arumasu?) is an item that appears in Sonic and the Black Knight. It is an unlockable weapon that can be equipped to and wielded by Sir Gawain.



Almace is a pair of identical swords that closely resemble double bit axes. Each weapon has a straight greenish gray grip with a crescent-shaped sword pommel. Above each grip, Almace has a metallic bar that is decorated so it looks like it has been wrapped up in a scaly rope, and on top of it, it has a cyan orb embedded into what looks like a closed flower. Around each bear on the swords is a golden cutting edge in the shape of a horseshoe, which are attached to the bars through four metallic plant-like sterms.
