Viking Carolingian sword 8th-10th century with scabbard
The Viking sword developed from the Roman spatha and was used by the Franks during the Carolingian period (between 751 and 911). This sword is purely handmade. The parry bar and the typical three-point pommel are made of steel. The blade is continuous up to the pommel and there it is hand riveted. The hilt is wrapped with leather band. The blade is forged from high-quality spring steel and hardened to approx. 48 HRC. It has a pronounced hollow, which gives the sword great elasticity and lightness at the same time. The blade tip and the cutting edges are blunt and rounded. The sword comes with a very nice wood-leather scabbard with wooden hanger as belt loop (for max. 5 cm wide belts). The scabbard has a richly decorated brass battlement.

general warranty for swords
Our show combat weapons are subject to the legal warranty of two years like all other goods. However, it should be noted that the customer is responsible for providing evidence of defects (e.g. material defects) that were already present at the time of purchase and have not been claimed within 6 months. Complaints after 6 months are therefore often difficult and unfortunate for both sides. An exhibition sword is naturally a wear item. Even the best and most expensive exhibition sword becomes chipped after heavy use, the parry bar can become wobbly and the grip can become loose. This is normal, because strong forces act on the material. Even with these blades the unlikely case can occur that they break if they are already weakened by several and deep embrasures. These are therefore usually not justified reasons for complaint but normal wear and tear. A used show sword shows signs of use after use.
