TOLEDO/SPAIN Marked Spanish MILITARY Pattern CEREMONIAL Sword with SCABBARD
With Nickeled Hilt and CHECKERED HARD RUBBER GRIP
Here we present a Spanish Pattern Ceremonial Sword, made in Toledo, Spain circa the early to mid-1900s. Toledo, Spain has been known for their blade steel for centuries, selling their wares all over Europe and later to the Americas. After the Reconquista, Toledo emerged as the greatest sword-making center in the world. The technique used for the Toledo sword had a “soul of iron”, consisting of a steel blade that concealed a wrought iron strip inside it, thus preventing the steel from bending or cracking.
The composition, tempering and design of these swords was always shrouded in secrecy, passed on from sword-making artisans to their sons, which led kings and heads of state from around the world, and even a Japanese samurai seeking the best quality weapons, to have their weapons manufactured in the city of Toledo.
This example features a 35-1/4 inch overall length with a 30 inch blade marked “TOLEDO/SPAIN” and “PIC”. It has a nickeled hilt, a checkered hard rubber grip, and a nickeled scabbard.
The overall condition is very good. bright blade. This example has maintained legible markings. All parts of the hilts have some wiggle around the tang. Good scabbard.
