TOLEDO BLADES VINTAGE SWORD

Today it's another item from my grandfather...
This is his sword he picked up on a trip to Spain back in the 50's.   
This isn't a real sword made to fight with, but more a wall hanger... and it hung in his bedroom since I was a baby, and now it hangs in my bedroom...
The etching is great on this... classic Toledo style.  
It is fun to swing around now and again, but it wouldn't hold up to a direct hit.
All Toledo blades have the name "Toledo" etched into them.
The pummel is great.
I'm not sure of the style of the sword, it reminds me of middle ages style... Having a cool wall art, that has history, style and uniqueness is what a Vintage Gear Guy has on the wall...
