    Practice Tournaments Late Dark Ages Sword

    (Circa X-XI)

    One of the most popular types of the swords for training or rebated steel free-play.

    The blade of this sword is based on earlier Viking Sword types but its' cross-guard shape is rather typical for X-XI century transitional period.

    The blade has classic wide fuller following for the most of the blade's length (which reduces blade's overall weight and increase its' lateral rigidity without compromising its strength) and relatively large pommel which is quite typical for the swords of this period.

    Blade has linear taper from guard to the point in both width and thickness dimensions insuring perfect balance around 9.5 cm (3 3/4”) from the cross-guard. Such balance provides powerful blow for this medium wright sword in combination with reasonable maneuverability. Relatively wider blade at the end adds a little bit more inertia to the tip comparing to the later European arming swords. This would have a perfect sense for the practice sword – to build-up necessary strength – or as a tournament sword for a well fit fighter: one would need slightly more energy to accelerate the blade into an attack which, in its' turn, will be compensated by more powerful blow and the advantages in creating powerful parry.

    The sword's blade has a heat treatment grade sufficient for the long life as tournament weapon but less then it's necessary to make it sharp. For ethical and legal reasons we are providing swords for sport usage only, not a weapon!
