Viking Sword of Erik the Red (father of Leif Eriksson)

The Erik the Red Legendary Viking Sword by Marto of Toledo Spain has a steel made blade with bronze plated cast metal hilt, ornated with figures sculpted in relief.

Erik the Red (Erik Thorvaldson, Eirik Raude or Eirik Torvaldsson) was a native of Norway and the founder of the first European settlement in Greenland. Nicknamed for the color of his hair, Eric was apparently exiled around 982 for killing two men. For three years he sailed around and explored the southern part of what he dubbed Greenland. In 986 he left Iceland with more than 20 ships and around 400-500 people. He arrived in Greenland with 14 boats and an estimated 350 colonizers. Although the settlement eventually disappeared, it opened the door to centuries of occasional explorations of the area and colonization attempts by vikings.

Eric the Red's son was Leif Ericsson, who went on to become one of the first Europeans to sail to North America.
