At first glance, this Hurum Viking Broad Sword might not appear to be the most graceful of weapons. Even with its thick, broad blade and matched guard, though, its appearance is deceiving, as the sword can be quite graceful and deadly. Based loosely on classic Viking sword design, this blade features all the typical hallmarks, as well as a few additional touches that make it a truly great sword for any Viking to favor. The sword is hand crafted to feature an EN45 carbon spring steel blade, with slightly slanted edges that draw the wide waist in, creating a slightly narrower tip that still curves into a broad but effective point. The sword also features a deep, wide fuller down its length, to help reduce its weight, ensuring that sword stays strong, as well as light and agile in a skilled wielders hand. The narrow guard is uncharacteristically thick, while the matched cast-steel pommel is flat, creating an altogether unique look for this Viking sword. The hilt is wrapped in leather for a comfortable grip, and the matched scabbard, which comes included, is made in wood and wrapped in similar leather. Bold, broad, and powerful are all words to describe this Hurum Viking Broad Sword, and attractive is also a good one, as this sword will make a statement at your side or on your wall.
This sword comes in two types. The regular version is tempered and hardened and features traditional shaping, making it a great choice for display or carrying to complete your look. The Light Combat version is tempered and hardened with thick edges and a rounded tip, making it suitable for light use in sparring and reenactment.
