Concept art by Peter Johnsson Introducing Next Generation Albion Mark The Thegn (Anglo-Saxon sword with hilt type L) The curved upper and lower guards of this sword and the three lobed pommel with the prominent middle peak are typical features for Anglo-Saxon swords of this period. The type is also found in Scandinavia and Petersen dates these type L swords to the second half of the 9th C in his study of Norwegian Viking swords. The two side lobes on the pommel may on some swords show clear signs of being stylized beast heads while on others the simplification has progressed so that the lobes are just saddle shaped semicircles. The upper and lower guards are usually thinner than those found on other contemporary swords. They tend to be deeper across instead like a broad boat shape when seen from the blade. Another typical feature is the short grip. On most originals this is around 3.31"(8.4 cm) or less. A short hilt combines with the curving guards to a surprisingly secure and comfortable grip. The Thegn has slightly slimmer dimensions than the other swords in this line. The blade is still broad at the base and the fuller is wide and well defined. This makes for a sword with quick handling characteristics. The hilt components are investment cast in mild steel from original waxes carved by Peter Johnsson based on Peter's first-hand examination and documentation of period originals of this type. The blade is made from a highly defined blade blank of 1075 steel that is hand-ground to a fine satin finish. Careful individual heat-treat in the Albion Forge Shop results in an ideal combination of edge holding and resilience. These swords will be sold sharp unless otherwise requested by the customer. The grip is of stabilized birch wrapped with cord and covered with the highest grade vegetable-tanned calfskin. Specifications Overall length: 34.45"(87.5 cm) Blade Length: 28.94"(73.5 cm) Blade width: 2.2"(5.5 cm) Subject to adjustments during development This sword is offered in a limited edition of 100 swords worldwide.
