This very affordable piece features authentic hilt styling, with a fully tempered un-edged and un-pointed blade, and is made
withstand rugged use while providing the level of safety required by many of today's re-enactment societies.
The grip is permanently mounted and the tang is riveted for safety. The blade is fullered for balance and features 1/16”
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
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.
The Practical Viking sword is based on our Godfred sword,
whose design originated in 9th century Scandinavia. The lobate pommel and down-turned guard are typical of Viking swords of
period, as is the broad blade with its deep, full-length fullers. The sword is well-balanced and, with a weight slightly under
kg, it is very quick.
