Viking sword island Eigg with leather handle 9th-10th century with scabbard
This magnificent Viking sword is based on a silver-exchanged bronze sword hilt, which was excavated in 1830 on the island of Eigg (Inner Hebrides, Scotland). Although some blade fragments were also found at that time, they could not be preserved. The original, beautifully detailed grave find can be admired in the National Museum of Scotland in Edinburgh. This fine piece of Viking history, dated to the 9th / early 10th century, is classified as type D according to the Petersen typology for Viking swords. As the blade is missing from the original find, a classic Nordic form was chosen for this reconstruction, and this one-handed sword has the typical characteristics of a traditional sword of the early Middle Ages. This early medieval one-handed sword is delivered together with a brown wooden/leather scabbard with mouth plate, burband and belt pull-through made of bronze (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.
