Viking sword with scabbard, 10th century, Sk-B - battle ready
This battle ready reconstruction was made after a find from England, which dates back to the 10th century.
The sword was made by hand. The blade was forged from spring steel 8eN45) and hardened to approx. 48 HRC. It is forged through to the pommel and riveted there. It also has a pronounced gouge, which gives the sword lightness. The cutting edges and the tip of the blade are rounded and blunt.
The guard and the typical pommel with five beads are made of steel.
The scabbard is made of wood and leather and has a wooden bow as a belt loop (suitable for max. 5 cm belt width) and is also equipped with a chape.

general warranty notice for swords
Our display weapons are subject to the legal warranty of two years like all other goods. However, it should be noted that the burden of proof of defects (eg material defects), which were already present at the time of purchase and have not been claimed within 6 months, lies with the customer. Complaints after 6 months are therefore often difficult and unfortunate for both sides. A show sword is by its very nature a wear and tear item. Even the best and most expensive show sword will become chipped after heavy use, the guard can become wobbly and the handle loose. This is normal, because strong forces act on the material. There may even be the unlikely case of these blades breaking when they are already weakened by quite a few and deep nicks. These are therefore usually not justified reasons for complaint but normal wear and tear. A used show sword shows signs of use after use.
