Viking swords were derived from the German spathae, swords from the Iron Age. They were quite long, had a solid protection and a strong blade. It is thought that they were the predecessors of the later knight swords and they were used all over Europe. A Viking sword had in general a wavy three-lobed pommel, long straight edges, a wide fuller and a short grip. The sword was short, presumably for a better speed. A lot of Viking swords were decorated with inscriptions or images.This is a late Viking sword of approx. 1,55 kg. It has a length of 88 cm with a blade of 83 cm and a cross-guard of 16 cm.
This sword is made by Jiri Krondak from Prague. During the last 20 years, this line of swords proved themselves on the re-enactment fields. They are continually perfectionised to a reliable and inexpensive type of re-enactment swords.
