During medieval times, the sword was the most personal, prestigious, and versatile weapon for close combat. The heavy sword of medieval chivalry had a large hilt, with a large protective guard or pommel at the top. The blade was straight, double-edged, and pointed. It was fabricated through repeated firing and hammering, known as tempering. Toledo, Spain was a globally renowned center of the craft.
In the Middle Ages, arms were often displayed on fork-tailed pennons attached to lances . If the forked ends were cut away, the resulting flag was similar in shape to a small banner. It was a means of recognizing particularly valorous conduct, and a knight thus distinguished was known as a knight banneret. The banner bears its owner’s arms, mirroring a square shield. Today, most jurisdictions allow anyone possessing arms to carry a heraldic flag in that form.
Each Sword is certified and engraved with the stamp “Marto-Toledo” to signify that it was designed, developed, and manufactured in Toledo, Spain by recognized expert artists, craftsmen, and sword masters to bring you the very best quality heritage sword.
