Very nice example from the 18th century, typical of Santa Cruz de Mudela.
You may consider it a previlege that it still keeps the inscription very legible and even bears a considerable part of the paint.

Default Red etching

Here is a picture of the etching (on one side of the blade only). Is it just a red paint?
