The typical, well-known Viking sword that was used in the 9th century. According to Petersen's typology it is a type "E", having a pommel and a cross with the characteristic shape and dotted decorations.
There are original finds from the region around Trondheim, Norway. However, this sword is based on an original sword that is in the National Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark.
The forged and tempered blade has rounded edges, which allows it to be used during full contact sparring and fighting. The cross and pommel are made of bronze. Just as in the original, the pommel is secured by two rivets. The tang is covered with a wooden handle and wrapped with leather which provides a strong and secure grip.
This is an excellent sword for heavy combat. We have put these to the test for years in full contact competitions. The balance, weight and highly durable material, together with the fully blunted edge makes it the perfect sword for full contact sparring and battles.
We give one full year guarantee that covers cracks or breakages to the blade that happen during a fight. Would that happen, please contact support with a description of the circumstances that took place. Please note that such information is important for us and helps us to improve our products.
The warranty does not cover:
- Blades that have been altered by making decorations by etching, engraving, etc. - Chips off the blade - Jagging or bending of the blade - Losing of handle as the consequence of normal use
Bending of the blade happens sometimes, especially when hitting with the flat side. In such case please just straighten the blade through bending it back to its original shape.
