This style of Viking era sword is the most prominent hilt type found on swords from the viking age and span a time period from late 8th C to late 10th C. On elaborate swords, the hilts were damascened with wire inlays of copper alloys, tin and silver. A few were left plain relying on the subtle effect of a well defined and polished iron surface.

The blade is defined by a moderate taper in width and a fuller that taper in width towards the point. The type can be dated to the period between second half of the 8th C to the second half of the 10th C. Many of the famous Ulfberht swords are forged to this form. The Hersir has a character of authority but is also responsive in handling: a powerful sword that well represents the feeling of well preserved, good quality originals of this type.

The pommel and upper guard of Albionís Hersir are made in two parts, riveted together, with a twisted sterling silver wire between the the pommel and upper guard. The hilt components are investment cast in mild steel from original waxes carved by Albion sword expert Peter Johnsson, based on Peter's first-hand examination and documentation of period originals of this type.

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.
