Spanish rapier, signed "Thomas Ayala en Toledo," early 1600s. 538 grams, 40-1/2" long, 34" blade. Ayala was a noted Toledo swordmaker, his mark a note of quality, and his tradition carried on by his son and others (of which this was probably a product since his name is misspelled THOMAS). This rather simple double-edged sword has a hand-forged iron hilt, fluted ball pommel, spiral-twisted carved wooden handle, all in very good condition. With photo-certificate
