The Sword of Christopher Columbus by Marto is a tribute to the great explorer himself. 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, La Nina, La Pinta, and the Santa Maria, crossing the sea. The hilt is 24K gold plated metal. The quillons are short, depicting two sea monsters with curved tails, and in the center an anchor head shaped plaque in burnished 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.
