There were given various shapes to these cutlasses in past times and there was an important Toledo production of them during the Arabic invasion. A sample of these cutlasses can be found in the “Museo del Ejercito” in Madrid.
Its main characters are the cross-ward, which raises to the handle on one side and descends to the blade on the other side, and its wide and curved blade.
This stylized cutlass of our production shows all these characters, remembering that Toledo was an important centre of sword production also during its Arab period.
