Norman sword incl. scabbard, SK-C - Sword for Swordfighting
This sword is made after the swords of the turning point between the Early Middle Ages and the High Middle Ages. In 1066, the Normans conquered England in the Battle of Hastings. From then on, William the Conqueror was installed as king in England.
The Vikings settled in England and went on the Crusades as Christianized Normans.
This Swordfighting sword is made exclusively by hand. The blade is made of high quality spring steel, which is hardened to about 48 HRC. It is continuous up to the pommel and riveted at the pommel. The pronounced groove of the blade gives the sword great elasticity and at the same time lightness. Both the edge and the tip of the blade are rounded and thus blunt.
The straight guard is made of heat-treated and forgeable cast iron. The handle is wrapped with a sturdy leather strap.
The sword comes with a very nice wooden leather scabbard with wooden bow as belt loop (for max. 5 cm wide belts). The scabbard also has a steel breech plate.
A matching scabbard to the sword is included in the delivery. It is made of wood and covered with leather. It also has a wooden bracket, which allows the sword scabbard to be attached to the belt (suitable for max. 5 cm wide belt).
