Ryan1367 is a replica of a Viking sword. The Vikings were Scandinavian people which flourished around 700 - 1100 AD. They were known for their boat-building and good seamanship which helped their expansion and trading activity. Vikings were thought to be very fierce in battle and favor using swords, battle axes and round wooden shields. Unearthed Viking swords show that the Vikings had an advanced knowledge in sword-making often pattern welding the blades and adding intricate adornments.

The pattern is wave-like along the edges and concentric whorls in the middle of the blade. The handle is wrapped with synthetic leather for comfort and better grip. The handguard and pommel are made of iron. The pommel is screwed to the tang, the tang is full.
