In 871 AD, the young Prince Alfred, later known as Alfred the Great, valiantly lead the army of King Ethelred of Wessex in a glorious victory against a large invading Danish army. This sword signifies the main weapon used in this now decisive battle. The armourers of Windlass Steelcrafts have forged this sword from high carbon steel. The full, extra-wide fuller makes the blade light and deadly. The crossguard has been lavishly decorated with raised knot work and both it and the pommel have been darkened to a forge finish. Soft worn leather covers the lamed wooden grip. A matching period leather scabbard with belt is included, which has a highly decorative metal shoe.
