OVERVIEW

Circa 750
The British Museum has many fine Viking swords, but one of the most beautiful and deadly is the "Leuterit" sword. This sword has the name "Leuterit" engraved on the blade and it is believed to be the name of the smith that made it. We have not included this on our copy, as it is cost prohibitive. But, we have stayed true to the size and weight of the original, and to its deadly beauty.

The Vikings were quite conscious of the need for a good sword. When they found one they took quite good care of it, so that many swords served several generations of warriors.

Guard and pommel are silver, with copper lozenges. Grip is wood with silver pins. Made from high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts, complete with scabbard. You have only to draw and hold this sword to know why this type of blade was used from Micklegard to Ireland, and from Iceland to the inland sea of the Mediterranean.

Can be sharpened for additional fee.

Really impressed with this sword. I have already used it for cutting and sword play with ropes and mats. I only had to tap in the tacks on the handle. The blade shows the use of play but still nice and clean looking. My swords never stay polished. I like it...

Basic but Well Made
Nice, basic Viking style sword. The copper accents are done with quality paint so that it does not look cheap. The scabbard is a bit of a let down (one star deduction). Just basic leather with no core. Overall, I am pleased

Thank you for taking the time to review the Leuterit Sword.  The copper is plating and not painted, but we see how it could be seen that way.  Also, many scabbards of the period were leather only.  This is why we decided to use this method.  We like liners in many scabbards and do that when required.  It is a bit basic overall knowing what we do now with leather!
