Viking Sword (88VS)
The typical Viking sword of the 9th and
10th centuries featured a long wide blade with a broad central fuller and two
keen edges. The preferred stroke was a hard slash or chopping blow, so the point
was fairly rounded but was just acute enough to be useful for thrusting. A
simple guard with forward curving quillions was often utilized and combined with
an equally utilitarian wooden handle that was covered with leather, bone, or
even cast in brass. What really made the Viking Sword so distinctively
recognizable from its contemporaries was its heavy 5 lobed pommel used to
balance the long blade. Our sword has features in common with its historical
counterpart. It has a double edged blade, hand forged out of high carbon steel
and then polished to a brilliant luster. The wooden handle is covered in leather
and is supported by a simple, elegant guard at one end and an equally handsome 5
lobed pommel at the other. Both guard and pommel feature traditional Celtic knot
To house the keen double edge blade each of our swords is supplied with a wood scabbard covered in black leather and reinforced with a highly polished steel chape and throat.
