Viking Sword with Scabbard

  • Regular price £399.95


The historic Viking sword of the 9th and 10th centuries featured a long, wide blade with a broad central fuller and two keen edges. The preferred stroke was a hard slash or chopping blow, so the point was fairly rounded but was just acute enough to be useful for thrusting. A simple guard with forward curving quillons was often utilized and combined with a utilitarian handle made of leather-covered wood (sometimes of bone or even cast in brass) and a heavy 5-lobed pommel to balance the long blade.

The interpretation of this sword features a double-edged blade that is hand-forged out of high carbon steel, hand-polished and sharpened to perfection. The wooden handle is covered in leather and is supported by a simple, elegant guard at one end and a 5 lobed pommel at the other. Both guard and pommel feature traditional knotwork embellishments.

The Viking Sword is supplied with a leather-wrapped wooden scabbard that is reinforced with a polished steel chape and throat.
