The Castilian Sword - Windlass Steelcrafts

Product Description

There was quite a culture built around the sword and for centuries it has been romanticized and feared for its strength and stature. Swords were not just mere weapons but were also important decorative elements in masculine attire and status. The Castilian is a regal sword similar in design of the prestigious maker Alonso Perez, who worked at the shop of the famous sword maker, Gil de Almau, who produced several swords for the Holy Roman and Spanish Emperor Charles V and his son Philip II of Spain. A sword gilded in gold like the Castilian would be a prize status symbol for emperors and kings.

Ornate 18k Gold Details

The engravings on the hilt are some of the finest Windlass Steelcrafts craftsmen have ever produced. Complimented by a tight twisted wire grip. The matching ringed scabbard has equally fine engraving work and is covered in a rich and supple quality brown leather. Both the guard and the fittings on the scabbard have been expertly plated in stunning 18K gold making it as regal as the originals.

Ornate and Lethal

The highly detailed blade has exquisite piercings on its upper section adding to it's uniqueness and aesthetics. Make no mistake, a sword is a sword and no matter how nicely decorated it is made to perform. This type of sword is capable of slashing and effective thrusts. It is forged from 1065 high carbon steel and is tempered to a proper flex. This is the sword of an emperor and under threat would be the last sword ever seen at the hands of a skilled royal swordsman.
