In Stock!This 9th Century replica of the Hedeby Sword has a blade which is skillfully forged from Damascus steel and its brilliant and ripple-like patterning was created when several different steels were forged together into a single blade. Original swords of this type were usually created with pattern welded blades which, like damascus, were forged by melding together several different steels into a single blade in a process which left visible patterning on the blade surface.
The hilt is antiqued brass with finely cast detailing and the grip is wood which is tightly wrapped in quality red leather. Included is a wooden scabbard which is overlaid in tight leather and completed with antiqued brass fittings with well detailed Viking knotwork; the brass suspension loop on the scabbard allows for the sword and scabbard to be attached to your own baldric or sword belt for wear.
