Damascus Viking Sword | Medieval Swords

Damascus Viking Sword | Medieval Swords

To generate an extremely hard blade, the early Viking swords were forged from layers of iron interlaced with sheets of steel. Despite the fact that iron was a tougher substance than brass, it was more easily divided. To make the blade powerful enough to endure the hardships of combat, Damascus, or ornamented welded steel, was utilized.

Around 850-900 Viking swords with this magnificent Damascus sample were discovered in several sites in Finland. Although it bears the lobed pommel that the Normans loved, the cross-shaped guard stands apart from the conventional downward-curving forms. The early blades were ideally suited to the Viking warrior's quick movements. Windlass Steelcrafts® used high grade Damascus steel to create our reproduction. To bring out the Damascus pattern on the blade, it is polished with acid etching on the channel. Steel pommel and cross. The hardwood handle is wrapped in leather. It is a true combat sword that any Viking would be proud to use in battle. It can be found on page 83 of Ewart Oakeshott's "Records Of The Medieval Sword."

A leather-covered hardwood scabbard with steel details is included.
