✅ SOLID CONSTRUCTION - Constructed to last and designed to function, each hand-crafted Viking sword features a semi-sharp, double-edged blade which has been given an excellent heat treatment to achieve a 56-58 Rockwell scale hardness.

This is the technique favored by all true weapons makers.

Meet Helbítr, one of the finest examples of craftsmanship coming from Norse Tradesman. Even a Viking berserker would praise the construction of this item. Made with 1095 carbon steel and featuring a semi-sharp blade, this sword is fully functional. The blade is full tang, meaning that the blade extends down into the handle as a single piece of steel, with no welding.
The pommel is hot peened, -- which means the end of the tang that appears at the top of the pommel is heated and then gently hammered and expanded to form the "peen block," which is then either polished into invisibility, giving it a seamless look.
The fine scabbard is fashioned from high quality wood and wrapped in brown leather, giving your blade a rich sheath in which to rest in. The baldric sheath features a brown leather belt which is fashioned to strap over the shoulder and across the chest.
