The one-meter-long sword, which was covered with shells and coral, was found off the coast of northern Israel.
It is believed to have been used by a large crusader about 900 years ago.
Amateur diver Shlomi Katzin, who made the find and handed it over to the authorities, has received an award for her civic work.
Katzin found the sword in an area off the coast where waves and undercurrents seems to have moved away sand and made the object visible.
The sword will now be examined by archaeologists and then exhibited in a museum.
