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.

This reproduction of the 8th Century Fetter Lane Anglo Saxon sword has a blade of Damascus steel and the skillful use of differing steels melded together into a single blade creates the vibrant, ripple-like patterning seen throughout the blade. Original swords of this type usually had pattern-welded blades and the processes used to create that steel and blade structure also created visible patterns on the blade.

The immaculately detailed hilt is reproduced from the Fetter Lane sword which is a prized part of the collection of the British Museum. Though only the pommel and half the grip of the original survive, these components are in excellent condition and they give a solid glimpse into the fine craftsmanship imbued into the swords which were the prestige of Saxon kings and champions. One one side of the hilt in cast relief are spiralled, serpent-like patterns and on the opposite side there is a bird-like creature in complex knotwork design.

The finely detailed hilt is quality cast with a bronze finish and the contrasting silver-like bands across the guard and pommel are plated in polished tin. Tin was a prized metal for decorative embellishment on original swords due to its relative scarcity and resemblance to silver. Like original swords of this period, the pommel on this reproduction is a two-part pommel with a separate cap which has been riveted over the base of the pommel.

The sword comes with a matching wooden scabbard which is tightly bound in stitched leather and finished with fittings of antiqued brass. The wooden suspension loop is affixed to the scabbard with thick bands of leather and serves as an anchoring point for the straps for your own baldric or belt to allow for the sword to be worn.
