In medieval days, damascus steel was steel used in Middle Eastern swordmaking, and was reported to be much stronger than European steel. If that is true, then this Damascus Viking Sword would be quite the weapon, being both beautiful and deadly. Traditionally, damascus steel features an obviously patterned texture across its surface, and many times this pattern is likened to the ripples seen in a pool of water. This swords broad blade does, indeed, feature a patterned surface that is quite striking to behold. The broad blade is crafted from quality steel and features a nearly full-length fuller that runs from the guard to the tip of the blade, serving to reduce the weapons weight without compromising its strength. The edges of the blade are straight and unsharpened, while the tip rounds off into a limited point, making this more of a cutting sword than anything. The narrow guard keeps the hand free of the blade, while the leather wrapped grip provides a secure hold and the broad pommel helps to counter the swords weight. Included with the sword is a wood scabbard that is wrapped in leather and decorated with brass furnishings along the throat and the chape. This Damascus Viking Sword is a true collectible, replicating the look and feel damascus steel in a brilliant blade that any collector or medieval enthusiast would no doubt love to have, both as a display and as a weapon sheathed at their side.
