High Middle Ages sword of the late Viking Age decoration incl. sword scabbard
In the High Middle Ages, Viking swords began to lose some of their characteristic features, such as the broad, slowly tapering blade and the three-pointed pommel, and began to look more and more like the long swords of the Middle Ages. This faithful replica replaces the three-pointed pommel with the Brazil nut form and the short, thick hilt of previous swords is adapted to the thinner, elongated and classic medieval cross form. The blade is continuous up to the pommel and is hand riveted there. The handle is wrapped with leather band and the blade has a pronounced groove, which gives the sword great elasticity and lightness. The blade edge is not sharpened. The sword comes with a very nice wood-leather sheath with a 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 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.
