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 Hersir Viking sword has a blade of tempered high carbon steel paired to a guard and pommel of steel. The grip has been overlaid with tightly fitted leather cordage to complete the hilt. The sword has a companion scabbard of wood with a skin of brown leather, a steel chape and a wooden suspension loop bound to the scabbard with leather bands.

The term ‘’Hersir’’ originally denoted a relatively wealthy landowning Viking; a person of status who would be looked upon as a leader in the nearby lands. In time the word changed; a Hersir was a Viking military commander with about 100 men under his wing and an oath-bound allegiance to a Jarl or King. In a large Viking attack a Hersir might command a detachment of the main host; in a smaller raid he could very well be the leader.

Due to his status in society, it is likely that a Hersir would possess a fine sword, instead of a simple spear or axe that his less wealthy and lower status countrymen would commonly bring to war.
