A Viking sword from the tenth Century with Anglo influences. Suitable for re-enactment. The sword blade is blunt with a rounded tip. The blade has a dull edge with a thickness of no less than 2.5mm.
The sword blade is broad and gently tapers with a single wide central fuller of near-uniform width running almost the entire length of the blade. The grip shaped with a central knuckle allowing the sword to be held comfortably with a hammer grip and with the hand lower down over the pommel. The leather is finished in ‘string-wrapped’ patterned genuine leather, which can come either in a standard black or a range of hand-dyed colours (see drop-down menu). The sword is a Petersen Type S, a pommel cap with 3 lobes and twisted copper wire decorating them. The curve in the cross-guard a feature seen in swords with Anglo influence, possibly used by either Vikings or local Anglo warriors.
The length of both the blade and the grip can be adjusted to suit your requirements. The sword depicted has a blade length of 71cm, a grip length of 10cm, and is 6cm wide at the shoulder. This particular configuration gives a point of balance of circa 15cm and weighs in at circa 1.3kgs. Of course, changes made to these dimensions will alter the properties of the sword. Whichever configuration you select from the drop-down menus, your sword will be manufactured to be both well-balanced and maneuverable and comfortable to swing.
As customers of Lancaster Armoury have come to expect, the sword blade continues to be made from the same steel alloy (containing Chromium and Molybdenum) which Lancaster Armoury has used for decades. This is tough steel and therefore we can offer a 2-year warranty on the sword blade.
The colour of the leather may vary slightly from the products depicted on this website.
