9TH CENTURY TINKER VIKING SWORD 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.
