Ancestral Viking Sword - A Saga of Steel and Valor
Unveil the valor and saga of the Viking age with this meticulously crafted Viking Sword. This emblem of Nordic legacy, also known as the Viking Age Sword or the Carolingian Sword, is a quintessence of the Early Middle Ages prevalent in Western and Northern Europe. Originating in the 8th century from the Merovingian sword, it quickly became the favored blade of the Scandinavian-based Viking warriors. Drawing its core design from the Roman Gladius, this single-handed sword comes with a sharp tip and keen edges perfected for both slashing and thrusting. Its popularity soared through centuries until the 12th century when it gracefully melded into the Norman swords, marking the nascent phase of the knightly swords.

Battling blades makes amazing swords. They also resolved a return for me quickly. I am very happy!
Beautiful blade wish the handle was a bit longer, nice sheath havnt tried for durability yet
This sword was bought as engagement gift for my significant other. I originally bought something slightly different, but due to delays, Battling Blades upgraded me to this slightly larger blade for free. Once the new sword was agreed upon shipping was really quick! The only thing was that part of the sword stuck out of its box by the time it arrived. However, no damage was done, and the sword is stunning. The sheath too!
