Late Viking Era Sword With Scabbard, Practical-Blunt SK-B
Late Viking Era Sword With Scabbard, Practical Blunt SK-B
By the High Middle Ages, Viking swords started to loose some of their more characteristic features as in the wide, low-tapering blade and the lobed pommel. Viking swords began to look more like the characteristic longswords of the Middle Ages.
This true to original replica has replaced the lobe pommel with the brazil-nut shape and the short, thick guard of earlier swords is thinner and extended into a characteristic medieval cruciform. This sword has been exclusively hand-crafted. The blade is hand-riveted to the pommel. The hilt is leather-strapped.
The spring steel blade is oil-tempered to approx. 48° Rockwell and has a distinctive fuller which offers both great flexibility and a lesser weight. The edges of the blade are blunt and the tip is rounded for safety.
The wooden scabbard is leather-wrapped and has a wooden belt loop (max. belt width 5 cm) and has a brass chape.
