Often overlooked by modern sword lovers is the tremendous amount of stress placed on a sword blade during battle. Early Viking swords were forged from layers of iron interwoven with strands of steel to produce a very tough sword. Although iron was a tougher material than bronze it would frequently bend. Damascus, or pattern welded steel, was used to make the blade strong enough to withstand the rigors of combat. Excavations of a number of Circa 850-900 Viking swords turned up a lovely damascus specimen in Finland, which is what we have modeled this sword after. It has the lobed pommel loved by the Norsemen, but the crossguard contrasts slightly with the typical down curved versions. The early style blade is well-suited to the quick, slashing blows of the Viking warrior. Our version is made of high carbon damascus steel. The blade is polished with the fuller etched to show the damascus construction of the blade. The pommel and crossguard are steel. The grip is leather wrapped wood and the scabbard is wood covered in leather with steel mounts. This is a true fighting sword, and one that any Viking would be proud to carry in battle.
