Norse Tradesman Handforged Spring Steel Viking Sword - Hand and a Half Hilt w/ Premium Leather Baldric Scabbard - Helbítr

Description:

Norse Tradesman offers the finest handcrafted medieval goods available. This Viking sword is one of the finest examples of craftsmanship coming from Norse Tradesman. Even a Viking berserker would praise the construction of this item. Made with 1095 carbon steel and featuring a semi-sharp blade, this sword is a premium replica. The blade is full tang, meaning that the blade extends down into the handle as a single piece of steel, with no welding.

The pommel is hot peened, -- which means the end of the tang that appears at the top of the pommel is heated and then gently hammered and expanded to form the "peen block," which is then polished into invisibility, giving it a seamless look. The fine scabbard is fashioned from high quality wood and wrapped in brown leather, giving your blade a rich sheath in which to rest in. The baldric sheath features a brown leather belt which is fashioned to strap over the shoulder and across the chest.

Features:

  • ⚔️ NORSE SPIRIT - This new & improved sword is named Helbítr, meaning hell biter in the Old Norse language. Drawing inspiration from 11th century Viking artifacts, this Viking replica sword features a semi-sharp blade, an antiqued carbon steel hilt and a genuine leather wrapped wooden shoulder scabbard. |
  • ⚔️ SOLID CRAFTSMANSHIP - Constructed to last and designed to function, each hand-forged Viking sword features a semi-sharp, double-edged blade which has been given an excellent heat treatment to achieve a 56-58 Rockwell scale hardness. This sword is no toy. Blade is full tang, meaning that the blade and handle are made from one continuous piece of steel with no welding. This is the technique favored by all true weapons makers. |
  • ⚔️ PREMIUM CARBON STEEL - Helbítr is forged from EN 45 grade high carbon steel, also called spring steel. This is an extremely durable metal that is perfect for swordmaking. It's quite challenging to break, deform, or even chip during day-to-day usage. To top it off, this steel has incredible wear resistance, so heavy use won't affect the metal's appearance. |
  • ⚔️ SHOULDER-STRAP SCABBARD - Each sword comes with a genuine cowhide wrapped baldric (shoulder-strap sheath). The belt of the scabbard is adjustable, so you can adjust easily as per your body size. Each piece is made and assembled by hand. The scabbard is constructed from high quality wood and wrapped in genuine brown cowhide leather. Recognize the incredible quality with a simple touch or glance.

Dimensions

Care Instructions

We recommend applying three or four times per year some beeswax polish to protect the wood surface from moisture and sunlight. Apply the oil onto a lint-free cloth and rub into the wooden surface following the direction of the grain. Leave for 3-4 minutes and buff over with a clean cloth.
