Overview


Circa 850

Often overlooked by modern sword lovers is the tremendous amount of stress placed on a sword blade during battle. Early Viking swords were forged from layers of iron interwoven with strands of steel to produce a very tough sword. Although iron was a tougher material than bronze, it would frequently bend. Damascus, or pattern welded steel, was used to make the blade strong enough to withstand the rigors of combat.

Excavations of a number of circa 850-900 Viking swords turned up this lovely Damascus specimen in Finland. It has the lobed pommel loved by the Norsemen, but the cross guard contrasts slightly with the typical downcurved versions. The early style blade is well-suited to the quick, slashing blows of the Viking warrior. Our version is made by Windlass Steelcrafts® of high carbon Damascus steel. Blade is polished with the fuller etched to show the Damascus construction of the blade. Pommel and cross guard are steel. Grip is leather wrapped wood. The scabbard is wood covered in leather with steel mounts. This is a true fighting sword, and one that any Viking would be proud to carry in battle. Can be seen in Records Of The Medieval Sword on pg. 83 by Ewart Oakeshott. Can be sharpened for additional fee.

Can be sharpened and/or personalized with 3 Initials for additional fees.

Sword review.
Very fine as expected.

Skaal !
Very nice sword.  Im giving 4 stars because the handle is very small...
- Philippe, September 05, 2018
Beautiful. No imperfections and very nice build. Slightly heavier than I like, but I am getting used to it. That's no fault of the item. Scabbard is very sturdy, although the wrapped straps are only decoration. Only real disappointment is that the hilt is a little short for me and the wide pommel hits my wrist on hard strokes. My leather gauntlets help to pad the the wrist though. Overall, excellent item. If ordered sharpened, it is very sharp.

Absolutely beautiful and exactly as I ordered! Thanks!

The sword is beautiful and well made, but the hilt is too short.  I have large hands, and they just fit in between the pommel and quillons, but  when I swing the sword the upcurve on the pommel cuts into my hand.
Unfortunately, it will make a very nice wall hanger.

A very nice sword that is slightly more blade heavy than later swords; in this is authenticity with the time period. I'm not all that happy with the faux banding wraps on the scabbard, but in all, a good sword if you know the correct form of grip. Authenticity would dictate that the fuller area be polished like the balance of the blade. As per Oakshot, you wouldn't be able to see the "pattern" unless you breathed on it. Joe Brown

Very light and fast sword, but still tough and just plain beutiful with the etchings in the center of the blade.
