Viking sword Haithabu 9th century with scabbard
This detailed Viking sword is a reconstruction of a finely worked, remarkably well-preserved grave find from Haithabu. It is assumed that this sword, dated to the 9th century, once belonged to a Danish nobleman or a wealthy Viking warrior. The original find can be admired in the Viking Museum Haithabu. The Viking Age settlement of Haithabu, the most important Viking trading centre in Jutland (near Schleswig), was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2018. In its design, this one-handed sword is a classic example of a Viking sword as swung by the Nordic warriors. It has the typical characteristics of a traditional sword of the early Middle Ages: a short parry bar, a straight, double-edged blade with a wide groove and a distinctive pommel with several bulges. The wooden-core grip is bound in red leather and decorated with decorative brass rings at both ends. The approx. 14 cm long, 2 cm thick quillon and the generous, five-lobed pommel are cast in brass. The engraved, highly detailed motifs and patterns that adorned the handle of the original artefact were reproduced here as faithfully as possible. This early medieval one-handed sword is delivered with a red wooden/leather scabbard with mouthpiece, burband and belt pull-through made of brass (max. belt width 6 cm).

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 an object of wear and tear. 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.
