Hersir Viking Sword - Stage Combat Version

Viking swords of this style, featuring a distinct, simple, and prominent hilt seem to have been in fashion from the late 8th to the late 10th Century. The wide blades with wide fullers had only a moderate taper, ensuring that these beefy blades hit with considerable force on the unlucky foe. Many of the famous Ulfbehrt swords were akin to this Hersir in form and design. An sturdily elegant, no-nonsense sword for the Viking warrior.
The Ulfbehrt swords are something of a mystery. Many early Viking swords appear to have a foreign origin - as many blades bear the marks Ulfberht and Ingelrii - two swordsmiths or group of smiths that seem to have been based in the lower Rhine. Perhaps they were regarded as higher quality imports and the amount of blades found bearing their inlaid iron mark is made all the more likely as a more expensive sword was likely to be cared for a longer time then more crude workaday blade. The name must have had some connotation to higher quality, as there are some obvious, cruder forgeries bearing their mark. Even then, con-men made knock-offs of luxury products!
The workmanship and storied legend of the Viking sword made it the likely weapon of champions and heroes in a world of tumult and toil. Even today, that awe of mysticism is preserved in these dark age blades that recall the epic tales and sagas of those that used them.
This replica Hersir Viking sword has a thick, blunt blade crafted from high carbon steel. The crossguard and pommel are likewise of steel. The grip is tightly wrapped in brown leather cord. It comes with a wood-core scabbard covered in brown leather with an integrated wooden suspension loop and steel chape.
