This is the second generation practical Norman sword. This reenactment arming sword is primo - the blade features an historically correct wide central fuller for strength and lightness and rounded-edge blunt edges - no more armor or sword nicks! The blade is 1065 high-carbon steel hardened to 50HRC with a 1/16" edge and rounded tip. The tang is substantial, with radiused corners at the blade shoulders and no welds. The end of the tang is peened through the pommel (see closeup above). The ribbed leather-covered grip gives great control. The tea-cosy/brazil-nut pommel dates this sword to the late Viking / early Norman period, circa 950-1100. Comes complete with durable fiberglass epoxy resin scabbard with suspension hangers for wear. I guarantee you'll like this sword.
