This Viking Sword by Ronin Katana has a sharp blade of 1075 high carbon steel. The guard and pommel are stainless steel and the grip was finished with a wrap of black cord over a wooden core. The blade tang is peened over the pommel to ensure a strong fitting between blade and hilt. Included with the sword is a wood-core scabbard which is wrapped in supple, stitched leather and completed with stainless steel fittings.
Many Viking swords feel heavy in the hand and their wide blades can give them a good amount of forward weight. This is good for powerful striking, but for many people it creates a blade that is slow to respond and difficult to wield depending on their individual strength and technique. By contrast this Viking sword is easy to wield. The shorter and slightly tapered blade keeps it from feeling tip heavy and instead makes it very quick, agile and responsive. Also, some people dislike the tendency of the wide pommel of Viking swords to dig into their hand or wrist when they use their preferred technique – the pommel on this Viking sword is less wide than most and minimizes this tendency for those who dislike it.
