The Viking sword is a new form of spatha, evolving out of the Migration Period sword in the 8th century, and evolving into the classical knightly sword in the 11th century with the emergence of larger crossguards. Viking swords are normally about 37 inches in length overall and will, especially toward the later part of the period, show increasing taper towards the point and a deeper central fuller in the center of each blade face. Pattern welding diminishes during the middle of this epoch to be replaced by iron inlaid names and designs usually formed with twisted rods, such as were used in pattern-welding, hot-forged into the surface of the blade. This is a reproduction of early Viking Age Spatha sword suitable for collection, stage performance, and reenactment. The sword is measured at 33” long, it features a 440 stainless steel constructed blade. The blade is slightly sharpened and measured at 27”. A ridge runs the length of the blade with a fuller down half then length. The traditional arch shaped guard is made by solid steel. The handle fits for one hand and is made by steel wrapped with leather. The pommel is steel in the transitional design of the early Viking period. Comes with the sword is a wood constructed scabbard with imitation leather wrap. The drag and scabbard throat are bronzed steel. A set of suspension rings allows the sword to hung from the wait or the back.
