The Nordic warrior held his weapon in great reverence and often lavished them with elaborate decorations. Our example displays a Viking dragon knot work motif. This is the perfect size for one handed combat in conjunction with a shield. The decorated head is tempered steel and the shaft is from a good hardwood. A great choice to finish out your Viking gear. A Viking's equipment consisted of sword, sax, axe, spear and round shield, the quality of which indicated a warrior's social status. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.
