Deluxe El Cid Tizona Sword By Marto :
A weapon traditionally identified as El Cid's sword, Tizona, used to be displayed in the Army Museum (Museo del Ejército) in Toledo. In 1999, a small sample of the blade underwent metallurgical analysis which confirmed that the blade was made in Moorish Córdoba in the eleventh century and contained amounts of Damascus steel. In 2007 the Autonomous Community of Castile and León bought the sword for 1.6 million Euros, and it is currently on display at the Museum of Burgos. El Cid also had a sword called Colada. • Overall Length: 38" • Blade Length: 31" • Point of Balance: 6 1/4" • Handle Length: 7" • Weight: 2 lb 7oz Specs will vary slightly from piece to piece.
