TRIPLE LOBED GODFRED VIKING SWORDNobleWares Image of Triple Lobed Godfred Viking Sword & Scabbard AH6966 by Deepeeka AH6966 DEEPEEKA
Named for the feared 8th century Viking raider, this fully functional Godfred Sword is made with the characteristic lobed pommel and short crossguard of early Scandinavian swords. This rugged Battle Ready Viking sword features a high-carbon steel blade with full length tang and deep fuller. The tang is peened securely over the top of the pommel for greater strength and durability needed for hard cutting. The hilt fittings are of steel and the lobed pommel has decorative twisted metal wire inlaid into its form. The grip is tightly wrapped in brown leather. It comes with a wood-core scabbard overlaid with brown leather and affixed with two buckles for a sword belt. This Viking Sword measures 37 inches overall and is hand forged and crafted by artisans of Deepeeka. The blade comes factory dull to allow for personal sharpening preferences depending on intended usage. Deepeeka is world renown for their skills and dedication to building fine historic weapons and armour reproductions.

The sword has always been a highly personalized weapons, but perhaps never more so than the Viking Age. A great sword was a spectacular investment in money and materials - treasured heirlooms, good blades were passed from father to son. Many swords were given names and ‘’personalities’’ - such as “Leg Biter” “Life-Taker” and “Byrnie-Biter”. Masterly crafted swords were so superior to more crudely constructed blades that it was easy to believe that the typically secretive smith who made them had imbued his work with magic, making it quick of draw, fast to strike and holding a keener edge. The success a excellent weapon brought a skilled warrior brought life into the legends they wove around their named blades.
