This fantasy piece is inspired by the Scandinavian knotwork that adorns the Oslo longship. No historical examples of two-handed Viking swords exist, as warriors preferred the protection provided by a shield (armor had not advanced sufficiently to discard it). This sword however, captures the fierce brutality that these iconic raiders could exhibit in between their nuanced storytelling and advanced craftsmanship. Perhaps a sword such as this could have become a favored weapon of a Viking berserker, as a testament in Hrolf's Saga of King Halfdan's berkerks exhibits: ''On these giants fell sometimes such a fury that they could not control themselves, but killed men or cattle, whatever came in their way and did not take care of itself. While this fury lasted they were afraid of nothing...This fury lasted about one day.'' - Perhaps a man such as this would like such a large, fearsome sword.

Made by Darksword Armory, this sword has a blade of 5160 high carbon steel. The dual-tempered blade has a shock-resistant core (48-50 HRC) and harder edges that will resist dulling (60 HRC). The grip is wood and tightly wrapped and stitched over with black leather. The sword comes with a wood-core scabbard, wrapped in form-fitting black leather.
