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.

Reviews for product "Viking sword Godfred"
Very beautiful sword, excellent for combat, fast shipping.
Very study, with a thick tang. Looks gorgeous, as does the scabbard. The hilt is large enough for big hands.
However, the sword has effectively no taper and is very top heavy, so it's pretty hefty. Feels absolutely bestial in the hand.
