Three Lobe Viking Sword

Our Three Lobe Viking Sword is based on a late Viking design from around the 11th century, contemporary with the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066. A similar sword was found on Canwick Common in Norfolk and is now held in the British Museum collection. It features a forged and fullered steel blade, and is hilted with a short guard and three lobed pommel, with a leather wrapped grip. Although this sword has a forged blade it is not tempered.
