Fetter Lane Anglo-Saxon Sword - Brass


Be the first to review this product

This exquisite example of an 8th century Anglo-Saxon sword is based on the surviving parts of an original found in Fetter Lane, London in the 19th century and now on display in the British Museum. Such a highly crafted sword would be reserved for the elite of Anglo-Saxon society.  The grip is decorated on both sides. On one side a spiral of four snakes separated by undulating leafy stems, the other a spread-eagled beast with gaping jaws in profile encircles its body with its zoomorphic tail, against a background of leafy shoots. The pommel cap, riveted into place like the original, features a central element decorated with a formalised tendril pattern, on one side alternating with bird heads. The hilt is constructed from antiqued brass with tin plated fittings that shine like silver. It features a forged and tempered high carbon steel blade that is designed for hacking and slashing, such was the fighting style of the era.  The leather bound wooden scabbard features antiqued brass fittings and a suspension loop allowing it to be fastened to a belt of baldric.
