These swords are frequently depicted on the tombs on the Scottish west coast because the galloglass and Gaelic aristocracy used swords like this.
Perhaps the most striking feature of this sword is its grip with a Rune inscription. The Runes possibly date from the 13th century, which shows that Runes were used until the Middle Ages. It is very remarkable that this sword was found as a burial gift: these were not common in Scandinavia.
The lowest ring of the grip shows a leave motif which is typical for the 11th-13th century.
This sword has a length of 102 cm, with a blade of 88 cm. It weighs 1,4 kg (approx. 1600 grams in the blunt version) and its point of balance is situated approx. 14 cm below the cross-guard. The weight is the same as the original sword.
This sword is designed for longetivity by using more advanced forging techniques and paying extra attention to weight and flexibility. The razor sharp version is suitable for intensive cutting tests.
