Additional information

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 hand forged 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.
