12TH CENTURY VIKING SWORD IP-003 LEGACY ARMS The Legacy Arms 12th Century Norman Sword is based on an original currently in the Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow, dating from 1100-1250 AD. The faceted wheel pommel, is a shape encountered in the Leppaho Viking swords, a group of swords excavated from Viking graves dating from 980-1000. The crossguard is of an early form, which the Vikings referred to as Gaddhjalt 'spike hilt'. As the Norman were descendent from the Vikings, so too were their swords descendent of Viking styles. The blade is designed for the cutting style of fighting used during this period and has a fuller running 2/3 the length of the blade. Features a sharpened carbon steel blade with full length tang peened on to the pommel for strength. The cross guard and pommel are made of solid steel. Includes a wood scabbard with black leather wrap and steel tip. Read more on Functional Battle Ready Swords
