Cold Steel Viking Sword
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.
