Viking Sword (ca 900)
This hilt type is believed to be produced most commonly in Norway. We found this one in the National Museum in Copenhagen. The pommel and guard are solid German silver and somewhat massive compared to many other Nordic swords, but are far from being too heavy and give the sword a very solid and well-balanced feel in the hand. The well tempered blade is deeply fullered and has a good spring. A very attractive sword to add to your collection. Made from high carbon steel.
Total length: 93.5 cm
