Description of the Product
Circa 900CE. This hilt type is believed to have been produced most commonly in Norway. The original of this piece can be found in the National Museum in Copenhagen. The pommel and guard are solid German silver and somewhat massive compared to many other Nordic swords, but are far from being too heavy and give the sword a very solid and well-balanced feel in the hand. The well tempered blade is deeply fullered and has a good spring. A very attractive sword to add to your collection. Comes with scabbard. Made from high carbon steel. Examples can also be seen in the book "Swords Of The Viking Age" by Ian Peirce.
