This Viking sword is equal parts historical recreation and inspired artisanal craft. The Oslo Viking Sword with Scabbard features a traditional Type X blade (of Oakeshott typology), while its guard and pommel are of a more unique design. In this way, this sword embodies the heart of what a Viking sword should be. Broad of blade and of medium length, this sword provides immense control and mobility without sacrificing the formidable amount of strength required to cleave and hack through foes. The blades hardy construction, forged from dual hardened 5160 high carbon steel, only further supports that powerful nature. The bronze metal guard and pommel are decorated with unique and distinctive patterns indicative of actual Viking era artwork. The blade is balanced by the pommel, while its weight is kept securely in check by a fuller that runs almost the whole length of the blade. The hilt consists of wood fittings placed around the swords full-length tang and wrapped in brown leather, providing a secure hold and grip. The sword also includes a matching wood scabbard, wrapped in fine leather, which perfectly secures the sword when it is not in use. A sword belt is not included, so you are free to wear or carry this sword using your own favorite belt or baldric. The elaborate design of the embellished guard and pommel make this Oslo Viking Sword with Scabbard seem like a decorative piece, but that stunning look hides a fearsome weapon that works as great on the metal piece as it does in training and battle.
