Description

If you look closely at the shop windows you will see some of the famous Toledo swords.Today we think that we have the best technology ever but throughout history, the blacksmiths of Toledo have (arguably) held the title of the best steelmakers in the world. Often counterfeited, never reproduced well, swords from Toledo, Spain, were unrivaled. It wasn't until that last few decades that swordmakers have been able to reproduce the quality and strength of swords made by Toledo smiths in the 15th - 19th centuries.Little is still known today about how the Spanish swords were made; the blacksmiths of Toledo were secretive to a fault with their techniques. Modern scientists and scholars have determined that the Spaniards used several different types of steel when creating their swords; very hard steel to give it strength and softer steels to give it flexibility. Added to this was carbon for better bonding of the steel molecules. The steel would be hammered, folded and quenched repeatedly, although what they quenched the blades has been debated for centuries. Some claim the smiths quenched the blades in common water troughs, others that the swords were dunked in oil. And still others say that ahem... urine ... was often used because of it's acidic content. The swords were considered quite prestigious, and many famous swordfighters across Europe would use nothing but Toledo swords. In fact, it is said that even some samurai from Japan came to Toledo to have their katanas forged. it has been recorded that the samurai were shown Toledo steel by Jesuit missionaries, and that the samurai held the steel in very high regard.
