From the pen of Miguel de Cervantes, Don Alonso Quixote, better known as Don Quixote de La Mancha, a fantastical nobleman with chivalrous ideas far beyond his limits, was born. The Don Quixote Sword by Marto pays tribute to this esoteric knight. A sword typical of Spanish descent, the sword of Don Quixote is a cut-and-thrust sword, which means its design is as efficient at cutting and slashing as it is at thrusting and piercing. With a long, efficient blade and an ornate, cup-like guard, this sword serves perfectly as the sword of a gentleman-turned-chivalrous knight on his outlandish journeys. The cup-guard possesses immense decoration of both 24K gold plating and silver, while the quillions of the guard for a crossbar and a hand-guard that attaches at the pommel.
The guard is silvered, gold-plated and lacquer protected. The golden parts are abrasion resistant.
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 blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
