Damascus steel Godfred Viking Sword
Authentic temper line. The handle is wooden, which is leather wrapped. It also features a damascus steel guard and pommel. Comes complete with a Period leather covered wooden scabbard with belt clips.
The Primary weapon of the Viking was his trusty and battle worthy sword. Most swords of the period were much shorter than they would become in the middle ages, but they were also much more brutal in the way the Viking warrior wielded them.
This sword is a museum replica from the 8th century.
The hand-forged blade made of 1095 carbon steel has a hollow grinding and blood groove, consists of 400 layers of Damascus steel and is therefore very hard, but also elastic. The sword is of a particularly good quality, very sharply ground and is therefore not suitable for exhibition fights.
The crossguard and pommel are made of Damascus steel and wrapped in leather. The scabbard is made of wood covered with suede, provided with bronze fittings with decorated metal bands, and there is also a hitch.
A picture in this size can only show the beautiful structure of the Damascus surface.
The well balanced sword is an excellent handiwork.
