Norman Sword -Blunt
4 in stock
Description of the Product
We are glad to finally offer our line of blunt swords developed for the rigors of combat. Each blade is built to withstand heavy use by reenactors or stage performers. Each sword is forged of 51CrV4 carbon steel, and tempered to around HRC 50-52. The edges and points are thick and rounded for better nick resistance and safety. These swords are crafted using same methods as original historical pieces with riveted pommels and the stout beechwood grips are covered with leather.
The swords of the late Viking era slowly morphed into Norman swords, and from there into the knightly swords of the high middle ages. The blade type remained much the same as it had in the previous Viking swords, the Oakeshott type X or Xa. The pommel in this Norman sword is of a Petersen type VIII, the so-called Brazil nut pommel. This sword type was widely used from c. 950 all the way to c. 1250, so swords like this likely featured in the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066.
When training with practice weapons made of steel it's important to use proper protections and maintain the condition of all items. Exercise proper safety precautions and control at all times to avoid injuries.
