In the SCA a person who is admitted into the Order of Chivalry, but does not swear a permanent oath of fealty is called a Master of Arms. This is essentially the same as being a knight, but a Master of Arms usually does not wear a fealty chain, may wear a white baldric rather than a white belt, and is addressed as "Master" or "Mistress" rather than "Sir".
