This replica sword is a beautiful piece for your sword collection. It was made after a sword excavated from a ship burial near Uppsala, Sweden. Because of the wealth and the craftsmanship the sword symbolizes, it almost certainly belonged to a chief, noble or elite warrior. The Vendel period took place between the Great Migrations and the Viking era. More of these richly decorated swords were found in the Vendel period. This replica is made of EN45 spring steel and has a wide fuller. The hilt is made of brass and has a layer of tin so that it appears to be made of silver. The entire hilt depicts beautiful decorations in the Vendel style. The pommel consists of cloisonne with red enamel. The sword is delivered including a brown leather scabbard with tin-plated decorations.

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.
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.
