  • North Grimston Celtic Sword

    In 1902, workers accidentally found a Celtic grave on the North Grimston estate. The Celt was buried with a shield, two swords, and a piece of pork. The smallest sword was decorated with an anthropomorphic grip (shaped like a human), typical for Celtic swords from the La Tene period. Such swords were luxurious and exclusive and belonged to mighty warriors.

    Similar swords have been excavated in Switzerland, Hungary, France, and other Celtic countries. The original sword is now on display at the Hull and East Riding Museum and is one of the best-preserved anthropomorphic swords. This Celtic ornamental sword is great for collectors of historical swords and as home decoration.

  • Colada Cid Cadet Sword - Brass

    The COLADA is one of the two swords, together with the Tizona, that legendary tradition attributes to the Cid, until he gave them to his sons-in-law, the Infantes de Carrión. The sword had been won in combat by the Burgos warrior from the Count of Barcelona and, although it was given, together with the Tizona, to his sons-in-law the Infantes, it was returned by them after the affront committed against their daughters, Doña Elvira and Doña Sol in the town of Corpes and which gave rise to the name of the affront narrated by the song of Mío Cid.

    After the incident, El Cid had been disgraced and asked the king for justice. The trial culminates with the "riepto" or duel in which the representatives of the cause of the Cid defeat the infants. These are dishonored in a public joust and their weddings are annulled, also returning the swords. Colada being given again by the Cid to his knight Martín Antolínez. Historians also doubt that the one kept in the Royal Palace of Madrid and shown as the royal Colada sword is indeed the authentic one.

  • Great Captain Cadet Sword - Forged

    Gonzalo Fernández de Córdoba was a Spanish general who fought in the Conquest of Granada and the Italian Wars. He reorganized the emerging Spanish army and its tactics, and was regarded as the "father of trench warfare".  He was also called "The Great Captain". Córdoba was a pioneer of modern warfare. As a field commander, like Napoleon three centuries later, his goal was the destruction of the enemy army. Córdoba systematically pursued defeated armies after a victory to minimize future resistance. He helped found the first modern standing army (the nearly-invincible Spanish infantry which dominated European battlefields for most of the 16th and 17th centuries).

  • Colada Cid Sword

    The Tizona and Colada Swords belonged to the Castilian knight Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar, known as "El Cid Campeador" in the 11th century. He was the prototype of the knight and a loyal vassal who took part with his king, Alphonse VI, in the conquest of Toledo. Subsequently, El Cid conquered the city, and kingdom of Valencia (which he ruled there until his death in 1099) from the Arabians (Moors). El Cid was a great war hero, a superior and extremely successful soldier of fortune, who apparently never lost a battle. To this day, Rodrigo Diaz de Vivar is known as a hero of Christian Spain, due to his excellent achievements in the Reconquest of Spain from the Moors. His title, El Cid Campeador, derives from: "El Cid" , a Moorish title of respect, from Arabic al sayyid "Lord"; "Campeador" is Spanish for "Champion".

    The El Cid Colada Sword by Marto of Toledo Spain has a double-edged Toledo steel blade, with 24K Gold etching on its upper part. The hilt is of Nickel-plated cast metal with twisted quillons and knuckle-guard, grip wrapped in a metal string with the aspheric pommel.
