Thegn or Thane, is an Anglo-Saxon title meaning an attendant, servant, retainer or official, usually in a military sense similar to the later knight. After the Norman Conquest, the existing thegns appear to have been absorbed into the emerging class of Knight. The Domesday Book, compiled after the Norman Conquest, still listed the thegns who held lands directly from the king with their respective counties, but the title became devalued over time, partly because there were so many thegns.

Albion’s Thegn is a tribute to those early military leaders and the sword represents one classic style of distinctly Anglo-Saxon sword hilts that date to the second half of the 9th Century.The curved upper and lower guards of this sword and the three lobed pommel with the prominent middle peak are typical features for Anglo-Saxon swords of this period. Though slightly smaller than other dark age swords available at Albion The blade is still broad at the base and the fuller is wide and well defined. This makes for a sword with quick handling characteristics.

The unique pommel, with its two saddle-shaped side lobes, are accented with a twisted strand of sterling silver wire on each side.The Knud has a hand-ground high carbon steel blade that is tempered for flexibility and edge retention. The crossguard and pommel are cast from mild steel. The grip is stabilized birch wood, cord-wrapped and fitted over with tight leather.

The sword grip comes in a selection of colors, please select an option below.
