Grave 32 Vendel Chieftain’s Sword - Tin Plated

£198.80

Be the first to review this product

Our Vendel Chieftain’s Sword features a highly ornate hilt, a testament to the craftsmen of the period. Like the original Vendela nd Viking swords, it features a two part pommel with a cap secured by twin rivets. This cap is decorated with deep red enamel to replicate the garnet decoration on the original. The stylised “ring” on the pommel, seen on other swords of this type, is symbolic rather than a moving functional component. The hardwood grip is tightly bound with brown leather. The fittings are plated with tin, much prized for its silver like appearance, and features antique brass accents. 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 plated brass fittings and a suspension loop allowing it to be fastened to a belt of baldric.

Description

Details

Found whilst excavating a 6th-7th century grave at a burial site close to Uppsala in Sweden, this Vendel age sword was undoubtedly owned by a high ranking warrior of chieftain. The Vendel era comes between the Migration Period and Viking Age and their rulers had troops of elite mounted warriors that were well armed with the best weapons and armour available. 

Our Vendel Chieftain’s Sword features a highly ornate hilt, a testament to the craftsmen of the period. Like the original Vendela nd Viking swords, it features a two part pommel with a cap secured by twin rivets. This cap is decorated with deep red enamel to replicate the garnet decoration on the original.
