Explore our range of historical battle-ready weapons. Virtually all of these are hand-forged from high carbon steel and tempered to make them both strong and flexible, just like an authentic functional piece should be.
We've designed this classic Viking sword as a tribute to Baldur, son of Odin and Frigg. The leather grip is laser engraved with three runes that we feel most befit the Norse God: Courage, Protection, and Strength. The 1065 high carbon steel blade is etched with runes that roughly can be translated as "Baldur", and arrives sharpened from the factory. The leather sheath has an integral belt. The sheath is covered with a layer of black suede and adorned with lace. The throat and chape bear a Viking symbol for the sun, as Baldur was known as a shining light to all who knew him.
We replicated this sword years ago (decades ago, actually!) after photographing the original at an auction and being awed by its graceful design. We delightfully bring it back, but this time with a gorgeous new scabbard and belt that befit its lovely air of elegance. The high carbon steel blade employs the high center ridge of the original that enables cutting and thrusting with equal efficiency. The pommel and guard are beautifully finished brass, a subtle design counterpoint to the camel bone grip. The reddish-brown scabbard and belt are constructed of thick leather with brass fittings, for a sumptuous method of sword wear.
This long dagger has an unpolished stained wood grip and low-sheen brass fittings. The brown leather scabbard complements the dagger fittings with a brass chape and throat with a roaring lion's head belt hook, befitting a nobleman.
This Dagger is a companion to the Faith keeper Sword, the high-carbon steel diamond cross-section blade on this dagger has a pierced cross of the Knights Templar at its ricasso. The pommel features a reversed inset image of the Signet of the Knights Templar, which can be used as a wax seal. The crossguard is inscribed on both sides with the Latin phrase Militum Xristi, “Seal of the Soldiers of Christ.”
