Help

The Hersir Viking sword has a blade of tempered high carbon steel paired to a guard and pommel of steel. The grip has been overlaid with tightly fitted leather cordage to complete the hilt. The sword has a companion scabbard of wood with a skin of brown leather, a steel chape and a wooden suspension loop bound to the scabbard with leather bands.


The term ‘’Hersir’’ originally denoted a relatively wealthy landowning Viking; a person of status who would be looked upon as a leader in the nearby lands. In time the word changed; a Hersir was a Viking military commander with about 100 men under his wing and an oath-bound allegiance to a Jarl or King. In a large Viking attack a Hersir might command a detachment of the main host; in a smaller raid he could very well be the leader.

Due to his status in society, it is likely that a Hersir would possess a fine sword, instead of a simple spear or axe that his less wealthy and lower status countrymen would commonly bring to war.
