The British Museum displays many fine Viking swords, but one of the most beautiful and deadly is the "Leuterit" sword. We have stayed true not just to the size and weight of the original, but also to its deadly beauty. The Vikings were quite conscious of the need for a good sword. When they found one they took quite good care of it, so that many swords served several generations of warriors. The guard and pommel are silver in color and feature copper lozenges. The grip is hardwood with silver pins. The high-quality sword blade is hand-forged of high carbon steel, tempered for strength and meticulously polished to a superb finish. This is one of the strongest and finest swords available. You have only to draw and hold this sword to know why this type of sword was used from Micklegard to Ireland, and from Iceland to the inland sea of the Mediterranean. Hand-crafted by the famed metalsmiths at Windlass Steelcrafts. Complete with a leather scabbard. Overall: 38" Blade: 31"Lx2½"W. 3/16" thick. 2 lbs./8 oz.
