Additional information

The Danelagh Viking Sword is a recreation of 9th -10th century Type L Viking Swords which are most often found in England and their date and provenance makes these swords which may have been borne into the British Isles by the “Great Heathen Army” of Vikings and their successors who invaded England and founded the Danelagh (Danelaw) – Viking controlled territory in East-Central and Northern England. Several examples of these swords are now preserved at the British Museum.

The blade of this replica is forged from high carbon steel with a tempered hardness of 48 – 52 HRc. Like many Viking swords of its type it has a characteristic broad blade with substantial “presence” and power to drive it through sweepingly broad and powerful cutting strokes. The guard is steel and the pommel is a two-part riveted construction that secures the pommel base with its pommel cap. The sword is durably assembled with a solid peen of the blade tang over the pommel end. The wood grip is tightly bound in spiralled vegetable-tanned leather in a bold hue of antiqued red.

The sword is matched with wood-core scabbard which is tightly bound in stitched, high quality leather to match the grip and completed with a wooden suspension loop which allows for the sword to be slung from a belt or baldric (not included).

    the is a really nice sword with marching scabbard. Heavy and feel solid. Only complaint is the fit and finish… one quillon looks longer then the other on mine. The blade is better than my usual deepeeka’s.
    I create a video of it

    I received my Danelagh Viking sword 1-25-23. It is a very nice solid well built sword. The grip leather is a beautiful red color as is the scabbard. I am a little critical of the blade however. Mine has spotting/blemishing to it and the blade is slightly wavy. Because of that I would consider the sword to fall into the blemished/munitions grade range….yet I was charged for “standard grade”. But over all I am very happy with the sword.
