Additional information

The Legacy Arms River Witham Viking Sword is based on an original 10 Century Viking sword dredged up from the river Witham in England. The blade is hand forged from 5160 carbon steel. The pommel and cross guard are made of solid carbon steel with copper diamond inlays.The grip is wood wrapped in leather. Includes a leather covered wood scabbard with steel throat and tip.
Although the manufacturer considers these as battle ready weapons. We have found that the blade temper is too soft for us to list them as such on some of the longer bladed swords.

  1. Greg Ballantyne

    I’ve had one of these for around 7 or 8 years now. It’s a quite recent representation of this style Viking sword, and I’ve cut a number of things with it. It’s really quite the cutter – I’ve had no issues with any blade tempering problems at all. The temper seems just fine, and this sword has held its edge very well. It also takes an edge if required. The hilt has been described by some as too long historically, but I have large hands and the pommel fits nicely into the heel of my hand with the 4 1/4″ grip.
    The furniture is a bit chunky and crude, and certainly from a historical viewpoint too heavy, but the overall balance is not bad for a cheap repro sword. The scabbard is certainly somewhat serviceable but is the weakest part of this offering,, but the sword doesn’t really mer it investing anything more to remedy that… You will never mistake this for an Albion except perhaps from 50 feet or more away, but it is 4-5 times less in price. If you’re looking for an introduction to this period for a lower price, this one is a good choice. It may however at some point leave you wanting something of better quality, but that is the nature and purpose of introductory experiences.
