This recreation of a 9th – 10th Century Danish Viking sword has a hilt of finely cast and detailed bronze which is matched with a forged blade of Damascus steel. The blade is vibrantly patterned with ripple and whorl designs created by the folding and melding of the different steels used to create the blade. The hilt is in the form of the Petersen Type D Viking sword typology and is based on a historical example. It is cast in bronze and finished with an antiqued finish to bring out its intricate detailing. Like originals, the pommel is a two-part pommel with the blade tang durably mounted to the pommel base and then concealed with a riveted cap piece.
The sword is matched with a scabbard of wood which is wrapped in tight leather and completed with matched antiqued bronze fittings and scabbard slide for wear.
