Viking Sword - High Carbon Damascus Steel - Antique Style - 38"

Product Description:

The Viking sword, also known as the Viking age sword or Carolingian sword, is a historical weapon that dominated Western and Northern Europe during the Early Middle Ages. Developed in the 8th century from the Merovingian sword, the Viking sword was the primary weapon of the Scandinavian Viking people. Its design evolved from the Roman Gladius, featuring a single-handed grip with a sharp tip and edges ideal for both slashing and thrusting. Viking swords remained popular until the 12th century, eventually transitioning into the Norman swords, the precursors to the knightly sword.

Blade Materials:

Our Viking sword is crafted from high carbon 1095 steel, renowned for its exceptional hardness and edge retention. With a carbon content of 0.95%, 1095 steel is among the highest carbon steels used in sword making. This steel achieves a Rockwell Hardness of 56-58 HRC, ensuring a sharp and durable blade. However, 1095 steel's lack of flexibility is addressed through a meticulous clay tempering process.

Tempering Process:

To enhance flexibility and prevent breakage upon impact, the blade undergoes a specialized tempering process. Clay is thickly applied to insulate parts of the blade that require softening, allowing them to cool more slowly during quenching. The clay is applied everywhere except the edge, preserving the strong, sharp edge while increasing the flexibility of the blade. This technique optimizes the blade's strength and sharpness, resulting in an incredibly robust and razor-sharp weapon.

Sword Details:

  • Overall Length: 38"
  • Rockwell Hardness: 56-58 HRC
  • Sheath: Leather Sheath
  • Blade Material: 1095 Steel
