Circa 650-750 AD
During the so-called Dark Ages, there were many advances in metallurgy and better swords, like this one, were produced. Based on a 7th Century design, this slashing sword was a favorite. The wide central fuller was the key to reinforcing the blade all along the edges. Hand forged from high carbon steel and tempered, this full tang sword would have been carried by the most skilled warriors. Brown suede wrap over wood grip and intricate bronze parts. Runic copper fill along the fuller was a skilled way to show the beliefs and power taken into battle to full effect and translate to: Cattle - reward for defeating the foe, Tyr - god of battle, Yew - supreme natural toughness.  The other side translates to: Game - wily nature, Elk - wild vitality, Man - the one thing that could embody all attributes. Includes elaborate wood, suede and metal scabbard with top grain leather belt. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts

I've bought many swords from Museum Replicas, been happy with them all but this one is amazing. I wanted something that a Saxon or Frankish warrior would carry but I know I was a little scared to take the plunge due to the cost but once I got the packaging off I knew it was worth every cent. The pictures don't do it justice. The balance on it is nice and it feels right in your hand. It swings well and is responsive. Not sure why they don't show the picture of the baldric that came with it, it has a gorgeous dragon head capping the end and a beautiful buckle. An extra bonus when I opened the box. I highly recommend this sword to anyone but especially someone who has an interest in the Migration Era
