The original of this beautiful reconstruction was once wielded by the dreaded Danish King Godfred (also referred to as Gudfred or Gudrød). Up to his death in 810, King Godfred lived and ruled in Hedeby (also called Haithabu), the principal Viking settlement on the Jutland peninsula (close to the town of Schleswig).
The sword dates from the 8th century and its shape is characteristic of an early medieval Viking sword: a short guard slightly curved forward, a straight double-edged blade with a distinctive fuller, and a broad pommel with three bulges.
This sword is exclusively hand-crafted. The guard and the three-lobed pommel are made of heat-treated malleable cast iron. The spring steel blade is hand-riveted to the pommel. The hilt is wrapped with broad leather straps. The blade is oil-tempered up to 48-50° Rockwell and has a distinctive fuller which offers both great flexibility and a lesser weight. The edges of the blade are not sharpened.
The beautiful leather-wrapped wooden scabbard features two straps with buckles. These can for example be fastened to the straps of your own sword belt.
This is the regular edition of this early medieval sword. The same sword is also available as practical blunt version with blunt edges and a rounded tip (product no. 0116696606).
