This Pre-Owned Arms & Armor 12th Century Sword has a customized grip with cross-hatched risers that was made by Arms & Armor. The blade has a medium amount of light scratches, scuffs and shallow spotted pitting. The entirety of the hilt is in very good condition with only a moderate amount of light blemishes. The sword comes with a custom scabbard made from thick leather with stitched construction. The scabbard has a large amount of scratches and scuffs on its surface finish.

To assign an exact date to this sword is very difficult. This type of sword was once thought to be from the later Middle Ages. Recent scholarship has shown that a much earlier date should be applied to many of this type of sword. The leading expert on medieval swords comments that it could be from as early as 1100 to as late as 1250. The pommel, a faceted wheel, is a shape encountered in the Leppaho Viking swords, a group of swords excavated from Viking graves dating from 980-1000. The crossguard is of an early form, which the Vikings referred to as Gaddhjalt (spike hilt). The blade is designed for the cutting style of fighting used during this period and has a fuller running 2/3 the length of the blade.
Features a blade of high carbon steel with central fuller. The guard and pommel are solid steel, while the grip is wood with a black leather wrap.
