The Sword of Christopher Columbus
by Marto of Toledo Spain


Christopher Columbus was a geographer and sailor, who conceived a project of exploring the Indies by sailing westwards. Christopher Columbus unsuccessfully proposed this project to several crowns and fortunes of Europe but it went against the most generalized beliefs of that time because it was based on the theory of a spherical Earth. After 20 years, with many difficulties, Christopher Columbus eventually got the support of Spain and its "Catholic Kings". He was granded three boats: La Pinta, La Nina and Santa Maria. On August 3rd 1492 Christopher Columbus departed with his crew from Palos harbour (South Spain). On October 12th 1492 they reached what we know as America, landing in Guanahani Island (San Salvador), the discovery of a new continent had taken place in history.

The Sword of Christopher Columbus by Marto of Toledo Spain is a tribute to this great explorer. It is a reproduction based upon swords that were used by the officers of the fleet at that time. The Christopher Columbus sword has a tempered steel double edged blade, decorated on the upper part with an engraving depicting the three caravels crossing the sea. The hilt is 24K Gold plated metal.

The disk shaped pommel is 24K Gold plated surrounding a Silver plated central plaque of the seal of the Spanish Royal Navy decorated with figures in relief. The handgrip is covered with brown velvet and wrapped with a 24K Gold plated metal string.
