Often overlooked by us modern sword lovers is the tremendous amount of stress placed on a sword blade during battle. Early Viking swords were forged from layers of iron interwoven with strands of steel to produce a very tough sword. Although iron was a tougher material than bronze it would frequently bend. Damascus, or pattern welded steel, was used to make the blade strong enough to withstand the rigors of combat. Recent excavations of a number of Circa 850-900 Viking swords turned up this lovely damascus specimen in Finland. It has the tri-lobed pommel loved by the Norsemen, but the crossguard contrasts slightly with the typical downcurved versions. The early style blade is well-suited to the quick, slashing blows of the Viking warrior. Our version is made by Windlass Steelcrafts of high carbon damascus steel. The blade is polished with the #fuller etched to show the damascus construction of the blade. Both pommel and crossguard are of steel. grip is leather wrapped wood. Scabbard is leather with steel mounts. This is a true fighting sword, and one that any Viking would be proud to carry in battle.
