Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon Sword

£136.67

There are four kings that this sword may have belonged to: Raedwald who was overlord of the English kingdoms between AD616 and his death (at the latest in 627, probably in 625/626), Eorpwald (died 627/628) and co-regents Sigebert and Ecric, who both died fighting Penda of Mercia in AD637.

Our Sutton Hoo Anglo-Saxon Sword is a based on the surviving components of an original found at the famous Sutton Hoo burial site. They can be seen on display at the British Museum. The composite hilt is made from wood and antiqued brass and is decorated with red enamel to resemble the garnets on the original. The hardwood grip is bound with brown leather and riveted to the hilt fittings in the same way as the original. 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.

Unbelievable value for money!Review by Sam

I purchased one of these, admittedly from another retailer(I won't name names out of respect for The Knight Shop), and I feel compelled to write a review here as I believe this line deserves some attention. To get to the point - you will struggle to find better at this budget price range, especially with Anglo-Saxon/Viking era swords. I had been sceptical about Deepeeka, but took a chance as I was itching to own a nice replica of the fantastic Sutton Hoo find. When it arrived, I was quite honestly stunned. It's very beautiful, very well put together for the most part, and handles like a dream. The scabbard is quite pleasing also - solidly built and a good approximation of its historical counterparts, much more so than those of other, more expensive manufacturers. I haven't done any test-cutting with it yet, but having run through some solo drills(with and without a shield) I suspect it'll cut rather well, if you put a good edge on it. The only negatives were minor... The brass hilt fittings are a little rough around the edges and there's a slight imperfection in the fuller towards the business end of the blade - nothing you wouldn't expect at this price and certainly not a big deal next to the piece's many positives! If you're into the Migration/Anglo-Saxon/Viking eras and want something that's functional, quite authentic and comfortably affordable, you won't go wrong with one of these - it's a stunner. I'm very glad to see more pieces from this line on here and I'll be buying another as soon as may be. Thank you everyone at The Knight Shop. S.Browne. (Posted on 14/06/2020)
