Sword Santa Casilda functional with scabbard, XIII-XIV centuries
Santa Casilda sword, functional from the XIII-XIV century. Hardened blade with high carbon content 1085. Wooden handle covered in red and black leather and bronze studs to improve grip. Includes a heavy sheath and a set of custom long belts with aged metal hardware.
A Latin inscription on the top of the knob says AVE MARIA PLENA GRATIA, and another in the cross of the guardian in Spanish says: on the one hand, GOD IS A BECOMES BETWEEN IN TOD, and on the other, O GOD IS A BINDER IN ALL A.
This magnificent original sword can be seen in Madrid at the Don Juan Institute of the Count of Valencia and is referenced in many of Ewart Oakeshott's books as a supreme example of a Type XII sword. He rightly describes it as 'sweet and well balanced in the hand, as it is beautifully proportioned'.
