Souto Sword

This sword was made in A Courña, Spain and was brought over to the U.S. by my great grandfather. He had to wait seven years in Cuba to immigrate to the U.S.  My mother said that they had the sword as decoration in the house that they lived in. The sword is a very important heirloom to the family. The sword was passed down from my Papa, who received it first, then down to my Aunt who now owns it. The sword is three feet tall and has detailed engraving on it. My family created a cutting board business called Souto Boards and on the T in the logo it is a sword. This sword has been very important to us since my great grandfather immigrated from Spain to the U.S.
