This Viking sword is a replica of an original from the 9th-10th century found on the isle of Eigg, Scotland. The isles of the Hebrides were an important base of the Vikings and were a part of the kingdom of Norway up to the 12th century. The Norse Vikings mixed with the Gaelic population. This luxurious sword is not unique. Similar decorated swords were found all over the Viking area. This Viking sword has a thin blade with a wide fuller. The guard and pommel are made of bronze and are richly decorated. The grip is made of wood and is wrapped with beautiful brown leather. The sword is delivered including scabbard. The scabbard is richly decorated in the 10th century Viking art style and has a belt loop for hanging the scabbard on your belt.

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
