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 Hurum Viking Sword has a blade forged from EN45 high carbon steel. The guard and pommel are mild steel and the wooden grip is bound in leather cord. The companion scabbard of wood is tightly overlaid in leather and finished with a steel chape and wooden suspension loop.

Although swords were much less common than spears and axes in Viking hands, this was likely due to its much higher cost over the axe and spear to produce. Not only did the sword require more iron, but it also required much more skill and effort from the smith. For while the spear and axe need to merely be durable, the sword blade must not only be made thin, but it must be well-tempered to allow it to flex and return true. The amount of smiths capable of doing this well was surely less than those who could make simpler implements and thus prices were high to reflect this.

This barrier to ownership meant that bearing a sword into battle indicated the noble or professional warrior status of the man who wielded it.
