Viking Sword Description

The Viking sword (also known as the Viking age sword) or Carolingian sword is the type of sword prevalent in Western and Northern Europe during the Early Middle Ages.  The Viking sword developed in the 8th century from the Merovingian sword and was the primary sword used by the Scandinavian based Viking people.  The sword was derived from the Roman Gladius sword.  It is a single handed sword with a sharp tip and edges designed for slashing as well as thrusting. Viking swords remained popular until the 12th century where they blended into Norman swords which were the first stages of the knightly sword.

Blade Materials

The sword is made from Pattern welded Damascus steel.  Pattern welded Damascus steel is a hard heat treated, folded carbon steel.  There are 11 pieces of steel, folded five times, making 352 layers.  The steel is the perfect combination of hardness and durability with a Rockwell hardness rating between 55 and 56 HRC.  High carbon damascus steel must contain layers of high carbon steel.  The high carbon steel we use is 1095 steel which is the highest content carbon steel used in swords.  The combination of the steel layers creates a sword that is strong enough to hold a powerful edge while having the strength and flexibility to withstand powerful collisions.  This makes the perfect steel for swords.  The handle is wood with brass bolsters.  It comes with a leather sheath.

Excellent sword

High quality Damascus steel with high quality fittings. I didn't expect this level of craftsmanship for a hundred bucks. I'm quite pleased, and will be buying from Battling Blades again.

Remarkable craftsmanship

I was sceptical that a $100 pattern welded damascus blade would be viable. I was wrong. I received my weapon a few days ago to use as part of a renn-fest costume. The workmanship is excellent. It feels solid, looks epic, and if I wanted to use it for combat I reckon it would hold up just fine. It is a beautiful work of art and the photos on the website do not do it justice. I am already looking around the website for my next purchase from Battling Blades.
