Been meaning to ask...is the cross at all historical? 
The Black Knight, Order of the Marshal
'Per Pale Azure and Sable, a Chevron counterchanged fimbriated argent.'

Those dagger-pointed crosses did exist. It's called a "cross fitchy" (or fitchee). This particular one would be more of a "cross pattée fitchy". As to whether the Teutonic order used it in the time that the surcoat/cloak is appropriate to, I'm not sure.

The cross fitchy is mostly associated with the Order of Santiago, isn't it? Specifically, the cross fleury fitchy.
Per pale azure and argent, an eagle displayed per pale argent and sable, armed and langued or.

So a Norman, a Saxon, and a Viking walk into England....
