Description

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 of chopping blow . so the point was fairly rounded but just acute enough to be useful for thrusting. A simple guard with forward curving quillions was utilized and combined with a utilitarian wooden handle that was covered with leather . bone . of 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.

This 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 lustre . The wooden handle is covered in leather and is supported by a simple . elegant guard and an equally handsome 5 lobed pommel. Both guard and pommel feature traditional Celtic knot decorative embellishments.

To house the keen double edge blade each of these swords is supplied with a wood scabbard covered in black leather and reinforced with a highly polished steel chape and throat.

The Hobby Stone arrived perfectly yesterday and I've already got my castle mold created and can't wait to detail it. The cast feels very strong and it's bubble free.
