This luxurious Viking sword is an asset for the lover of Windlass swords and the Viking culture. Erik the Red is one of the most famous Vikings who has ever lived and one of the most important historical figures in Iceland. Erik left Norway with his father for murders and ended up in Iceland. He founded the first Viking settlement in Greenland after fleeing Iceland for another murder. His wanderlust was not over yet: he was the first Viking to reach the shores of America. His son Leif Eriksson was also a famous Viking who discovered Canada. In Iceland they are the most famous Viking family and you can visit many historical places where they have been. This Viking sword is inspired by the life of Erik the Red. The sword pommel, guard and grip are decorated with motifs from Viking art (Mammen style). Biting snakes in particular can be seen, which refers to the Midgard snake from the Edda. It is delivered including a high quality scabbard with scabbard tip and sword belt so you can hang it around your waist. The semi-sharp blade is hand-forged from tempered 1065 carbon steel with a hardness of 48-52 HRC. A beautiful sword for your reenactment Viking costume or Viking Cosplay.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.
Maintenance & care
Just as with weaponry, you can care for your shoes and leatherware by applying a little Ballistol after cleaning. This prevents the leather from drying out.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
