9TH CENTURY TINKER VIKING SWORDImage of SH2408 9th Century Tinker Viking Sword and scabbard by CAS Hanwei SH2408 CAS HANWEI
While not a direct copy of any particular sword, this Viking sword design was inspired by historical examples from the early 9th Century, most notably finds from the area around Trondheim, Norway, where the circular indentation hilt decoration was popular. The SH2408 was designed by Michael "Tinker" Pearce for CAS Hanwei and features a sharpened high carbon steel blade with central fuller. The guard and pommel are steel, while the grip is wood with a black leather wrap. The sword tang is peened to the pommel for durability and historical accuracy. The breadth of the CAS Hanwei SH2408 makes for an efficient cutting profile. The included scabbard is composite fiberglass with leather wrap and steel hardware. The scabbards are provided with suspension points and a period chape, giving the sheathed sword a very attractive appearance.

CAS has commissioned Michael ‘Tinker’ Pearce to design a line of swords that will satisfy both the sparring and cutting needs of Western Martial Arts practitioners. Matching sharp and blunt versions of each sword in the series offer the same outstanding handling characteristics in both disciplines. Our 9th Century Viking Sword features the classic Type X wide fullered blade. Unlike the other models in this line the 9th Century Viking is of a peened pommel design. The accompanying blunt is thus geared towards the discerning reenactor with 2mm rounded edges and a more historical appearance.
