10th Century Viking Sword with scabbard

  • Sale
  • Regular price £254.95


Beside the axe, a Viking's most essential weapon was the sword, a fact which could be seen reflected in their faith: The warriors who had fallen on the battlefield with their sword in hand were deemed worthy of entering Valhalla. The sheer variety of forms and designs that characterizes the Viking art and handicraft also extended to swords.

This is a faithful Reconstruction of a 10th century Viking sword found in England and is exclusively hand crafted. The guard and the characteristic pommel with five bulges are forged out of steel. The blade is hand-riveted to the pommel. The hilt is leather-strapped. The blade has a distinctive fuller which offers both great flexibility and a lesser weight. The edges of the blade are not sharpened, this is a blunt sword.

The beautiful wooden scabbard is leather-wrapped and features a wooden belt loop (max. belt width 5 cm) as well as a richly adorned brass chape.


Delivery includes a wooden scabbard covered in leather and featuring a throat and a chape made of brass, both richly adorned and true to the original style of the era.
