Additional information

This Irish Gallowglass Longsword has a forged blade of tempered high carbon steel; its hollow ground cross section ably reduces unneeded weight of the long blade. The crossguard and pommel are crafted from steel and the wooden grip is bound in tight leather. The sword is matched with a companion scabbard of war which is wrapped in leather.

This Gaelic-Norse Gallowglass sword has the characteristic ring-pommel and flared crossguard associated with these mercenary warriors who formed the solid backbone of an Irish chieftains battleline. Typically hailing from the Norse-Gaelic clans who were of mixed Norse and Scot ancestry, the Gallowglass were prized warriors who could be counted on for loyalty to their employer as they themselves were removed from the intricacies of local politics. In time, as more of the Gallowglass warriors settled and their clans of origin became more deeply rooted in Ireland, the term Gallowglass would blur into a term for a professional warrior class. Their mixed ancestry of Norse and Scot showed in their choice of weaponry; namely the large Sparth axe and large ring-hilted swords such as this.
