Beautiful swords made from a special kind of crystal.

— Description, Sonic and the Black Knight[1]

Gringolet (グリンゴレット Guringoretto?) 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.



Gringolet is a pair of identical swords with a single edge. Each sword has a thick light gray grip with a flat and slightly oblique light gray guard on top of it that tilts downward on the front, and a knuckle bow that extends from the front edge of the guard to the sword pummel. Each blade on the swords are made of sky blue crystals and curve slightly up at the top. The front edge of each blade is serrated with layers of crystal, with the lowest layer sticking out like a claw. The back edge of each blade, however, is mostly covered by a gray metal sheet that curve slightly inward and which is decorated with a figure resembling a wine with leaves.
