The Tizona Sword Letter Opener, by Marto, is a miniature replica of a sword that 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. El Cid was a war hero, who apparently never lost a battle. His title El Cid Campeador, derives from El Cid, a Moorish title of respect from the Arabic al sayyid, while Campeador is Spanish for Champion. The Tizona Sword Letter Opener has a double-edged steel blade. The hilt is highly stylized, with a two-lobe shaped pommel and downward curved quillons on the guard, which enlarge at their ends as leaves.
