Viking Sword with Scabbard, 11th Century
Battle-Ready (Practical Blunt), SK-B
The battle-ready single-handed sword we offer here is an interpretation of a Viking sword from the 11th century. This type of sword (Oakeshott Type X) represents the transition from the Viking sword to the medieval or knightly sword, and the many surviving examples attest to its popularity in both the late Viking Age and the High Middle Ages.
The double-edged, hardened EN45 spring steel blade tapers slightly towards the point, and has an approx. 2 cm wide fuller that extends almost the entire blade length on both sides. The thick edges are not sharpened, and the blade’s full tang is riveted to the pommel. The wooden grip has a tight binding of brown leather cord. It is framed by a stout pommel and a straight crossguard, both made of steel. The guard is approx. 16.5 cm long and approx. 2 cm thick in its middle, with quillons that taper to approx. 0.5 cm in a cylindrical shape.
This one-handed sword comes complete with a brown wood-and-leather scabbard.
This sword is a battle-ready weapon. The blade's blunt, 1.5 mm / 2 mm thick edges and rounded tip make it ideal for light combat reenactment, stage fighting or sparring.
