This is a very well-known sword from the XVI century, valued in all Europe and used by the brave Captains of the Flanders Corps and courageous Conquerors of America. This Spanish style sword stands out due to its hilt with cup shape that could be finished in different ways (open work, engraved etched, damascened, etc.) as well as to its graceful and light blade, carefully tempered, that we can admire in the most museums of the world.
This is just an ornamental item, not suitable for combat or any other practical use!
Premium quality made by Marto in Toledo (Spain).
In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
