Viking swords like this are designed for fighting against opponents with shields, chainmail, or leather armor at their defence. The Sword Maldon is a classic replica of a Viking sword, but with a light weight and is wonderfully comfortable to hold. You can combine the sword in battles very well with a shield, or fight together with a sax or axe. The tip of Viking swords was perfect for cutting in depth, while the rest of the blade was perfect for slashing. The Maldon sword has a beautiful dark Scandinavian look due to the patinated finish, and a grip with traditional leather wrapping. The sword is delivered including a leather scabbard and certificate of authenticity.
The Battlecry line of historical swords, daggers and axes was designed in collaboration with John Clements. John has unsurpassed knowledge of historical fencing and medieval and Renaissance fighting methods. All items are hand-forged by the forgery of Windlass Steelcrafts of high quality 1065 tempered carbon steel and are strong and resilient. The swords have an extra wide full tang and all weapons are sharp and suitable for cutting tests.
Each model has been put through rigorous physical testing to exceed industry standards. These battle tested weapons have a patinated finish which makes them look even more authentic and historical. Each weapon is individually inspected at every step of the manufacturing process, and only after passing the inspection do they receive the blacksmith's mark on the blade. Each weapon is delivered including a certificate, signed by all craftsmen who have worked on the weapon. Also included is a matching scabbard and, if applicable, a swordfrog.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.
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.
