Description of the Product

The British Museum has many fine Viking swords, but one of the most beautiful and deadly is the "Leuterit" sword. We have stayed true to the size and weight of the original, and to its deadly beauty. The Vikings were quite conscious of the need for a good sword. When they found one, they took quite good care of it, so that many swords served several generations of warriors. Guard and pommel are silver, with copper lozenges. Grip is wood with silver pins. Made from high carbon steel, complete with scabbard. You have only to draw and hold this sword to know why this type of blade was used from Micklegard to Ireland, and from Iceland to the inland sea of the Mediterranean. Circa 750.
