This ‘’Munitions Grade” item is not up to our normal high standards. Munitions grade items will typically have various bends or twists in the blades, basically rendering them as 2nds quality. These items are still a great choice for collecting and re-enacting and functional pieces will still be functional. Please keep this in mind when ordering.

The battle-ready version of the 11th Century Viking Sword has a forged blade of EN45 high carbon steel. The crossguard and pommel are mild steel; the grip is wood and tightly bound with a band of spiralled leather. The tang of the sword is securely peened to the pommel.

The sword is paired with a wood-core scabbard wrapped in brown leather and finished with a pair of adjustable, integrated sword hangers of leather with metal buckles.

A sword was unique among weapons in Viking culture; it was the only weapon which did not have a counterpart meant to be used as an everyday tool. The spear could be used to hunt, the axe to chop wood, the seax to cut rope and for farm-hold chores. The sword was different - for the sword existed solely for war and duel.

For this it had a particular reverence in Viking culture and a man who bore one into battle, whether in his hand or at his side marked himself as a successful warrior or nobleman. The great cost to produce and own a sword was not a wise investment for a minor freeman with a farmhold to oversee, but it was a cost gladly borne by the wealthy, or those who knew they would use it. A man with a sword, paired with a fine helmet and perhaps a chainmail byrnie could reasonably be assumed to be a nobleman or the oath-bound warriors of his personal war-retinue, who were well-equipped for battle in exchange for honor-bound service on the battlefield.
