Not only was the damascus steel of the Middle Eastern swordsmiths of old possessed of immense beauty, but it was also said to be legendary for its sharpness and strength. If such were the case, then this Damascus Viking Sword would be nigh-unbeatable. 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 is a bit more angular, which makes this sword primarily a cutting and slashing weapon. 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. It may not be true damascus steel from the medieval era, but this Damascus Viking Sword comes fairly close in appearance and feel, making it a great weapon to show off in the comforts of your own home, as well as a choice sword to strap to your side whenever you don your medieval garb.
