Practical Viking Re-enactor's Sword
Our practical Viking Re-enactor's Sword is based on swords from the 9th century found in Scandinavia. The lobate pommel and down-turned guard are typical of Viking swords of the period, as is the broad blade with its deep, full-length fullers. The sword is well-balanced and, with a weight slightly over 2 lbs., it is very quick.
This Viking Age broadsword is based on authentically styled swords and is tailored to meet the needs of living history re-enactment and stage combat. This very popular and affordable weapon features authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blade. It is designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies. The blade is crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blade is substantial, it is fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. It features 1/16” wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tang is also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is riveted over the pommel, which both eliminates any possibility of inadvertent disassembly and provides a traditional means of tightening a loose hilt. The hardwood grip is leather-covered. The scabbard is fabricated in glass-filled resin, to provide great impact resistance, to eliminate swelling and to minimize blade corrosion problems. The scabbard features belt rings that adjust to allow vertical or horizontal carry. The attractive wood-grain finish can also be decorated by re-enactors who want the scabbard to match their persona.
