Son of King Alphonse IX of Leon and Queen Berenquela of Castilla, Fernanco III the Saint unified both kingdoms under his crown. Promoter of the process of reconquest, he conquered, among others, the town of Sevilla, capital of th the region, and Cordoba, whose mosque he transformed into a cathedral. His son, Alphonse X, is believed to have possessed this sword too, and was one of the great cultural promoters of the middle ages. In one of his books, "Las Siete Partidas", he described the four values every sword should bear: Good Sense, Strength, Prudence, and Justice. Saint Ferdinand III was the King of Castile from 1217 and King of Leon from 1230. Through his second marriage he was also Count of Aumale. Saint Ferdinand III finished the work done by his maternal grandfather Alfonso VIII and consolidated the Reconquista against the Moors. In 1231, he permanently united Castile and Leon. He was canonized in 1671 and, in Spanish, he is Fernando el Santo or San Fernando.

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.
