While not a direct copy of any particular sword, the Viking sword design was inspired by historical examples from the early 9th Century, most notably finds from the area around Trondheim, Norway, where the circular indentation hilt decoration was popular. The scabbards are provided with suspension points and a period chape, giving the sheathed sword a very attractive appearance. The construction of the Viking Sword differs from other swords in the Tinker series inasmuch as they are tang-riveted(peened) in period fashion at the pommel, primarily to satisfy Viking re-enactment requirements. However, as with the other swords in the series, replacement blades are available. CAS has commissioned Michael "Tinker" Pearce to design a line of swords that will satisfy both the sparring and cutting needs of Western Martial Arts practitioners. Matching sharp and blunted versions of each sword in the series offer the same outstanding handling characteristics in both disciplines. The swords meet Tinker's exacting quality requirements and are built in much the same way as his custom pieces.

"I like it. It seems a bit front heavy, but well made for this price. Everything is tight and well finished. Grip a bit long." -Michael (4/5)
