10th Century Viking Sword with Scabbard, practical blunt, SK-B
Beside the axe, a Viking's most essential weapon was the sword, a fact which could be seen reflected in their faith: Only the
warriors who had fallen on the battlefield with their sword in hand were deemed worthy of entering Valhalla. The sheer variety
of forms and designs that characterizes the Viking art and handicraft also extended to swords.
This battle-ready replica of a 10th c. Viking sword is the result of our own extensive research and swordsmithing work. Our
objective was first to create a reconstruction, which would later serve as a model for a serial production of both a sharpenable
decoration sword and a blunt, battle-ready one. In the developing process, we deliberately opted for a sword type which is rarely
replicated. The sword is largely modeled on original archaeological finds as described in relevant specialised literature.
However, the shape and length of the blade as well as the dimensions of the handle section have been adjusted to fit the size of
today's men and women and to meet the demands of modern stage fighting / combat reenactment.
Swords of this type are classified as Petersen Type S or Wheeler Type III. The hilt's design is based on the
combination type 10 according to Geibig's typology.
This Viking sword is exclusively crafted by hand. The blade is forged out of EN45 spring steel, oil-hardened and tempered to a
Rockwell hardness of approx. 48-50 HRC. It features a distinctive broad fuller which not only makes for high flexibility, but
also reduces weight. The blade is full-tanged and riveted to the pommel. The point and cutting edges are blunt and rounded. The
cross guard is forged out of steel and the wooden grip is wrapped in leather.
Delivery includes a wooden scabbard covered in leather and featuring a throat and a chape made of silver-plated brass, both
richly adorned and true to the original style of the era.
