Practical Norman Sword

The Practical 11th Century Sword features a “tea-cosy” pommel and a sculptured cross that curves gently towards the blade. The broad blade has full-length fullers and is very lively for an un-edged blade. It weighs around 950 grams.

These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies. The blades are crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics.

Product Description

Details

The Practical 11th Century Sword features a “tea-cosy” pommel and a sculptured cross that curves gently towards the blade. The broad blade has full-length fullers and is very lively for an un-edged blade. It weighs around 950 grams. 

Our Practical (SH2106, SH2046, SH2047 & SH2326) are all based on authentically styled swords in our collection but they are tailored to meet the needs of re-enactment and stage combat. 

These very popular and affordable weapons feature authentic hilt styling, with fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blades. They are designed to withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today’s re-enactment societies. The blades are crafted from 1065 high-carbon steel, hardened to 50HRC, which restricts edge-notching to acceptable levels while providing resilience and protection against brittleness. While the blades are substantial, they are fullered to provide balance and good handling characteristics. 

They feature 2 mm wide edges and rounded tips for safety. The tangs are also substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is riveted over the pommel, which both eliminates any possibility of inadvertent disassembly and provides a traditional means of tightening a loose hilt. The hardwood grips are leather-covered. The scabbards are fabricated in glass-filled resin, to provide great impact resistance, to eliminate swelling and to minimize blade corrosion problems. The scabbards now feature belt rings that adjust to allow vertical or horizontal carry. 

The wood-grain finish is attractive, but most re-enactors will decorate the scabbard to match their persona.

Buy the Practical Norman Sword with confidence from the UK’s leading Viking sword retailer.
