Durandal was the sword of Roland (aka Roldan), the paladin of Charlemagne. Stories say that it once belonged to Hector of Troy, and that it was indestructible. The Sword of Roland, by Marto, is a replica of the Durandal as it is perceived today. This sword is a replica of this famous sword. The leaf-shaped pommel displays a proud, noble portrait of a strong warrior, while the hilt is decorated with a simple texture. The guard consists of twin crossbars that curve down towards the blade, each ending with a powerful lions head. The blade is simple, with small 24K gold etchings along the upper part of the blade but little ornamentation along the rest. Strong, fierce, and indomitable are words that would once have described the Durandal and its wielder, Roland, and these words still ring true today for the Sword of Roland, by Marto.
