The Normans (also called Northmen or Norsemen) were the descendants of the Scandinavian Vikings who raided the European coastal settlements at the outset of the 8th century. Despite the Norman's conversion to Christianity and their adoption of Frankish way of life, the Normans retained many of the traits of their Germanic ancestors.
This diamond shaped blade is extremely well balanced, making this one of the lightest and most maneuverable Medieval swords for cut and thrust swordplay.
This sword comes with a wood core, deluxe scabbard as standard and includes a fully wearable, premium quality sword belt with suspension system - allowing it to be worn or for an extra flourish when not in use hung on the wall.
Unlike Darksword blades we sold in the past, the sword is automatically also given a thorough sharpening until it is paper cutting sharp!
The hilt itself is extremely attractive and authentic, with a mild steel crossguard and genuine leather wrap handle.
The Norman, classified as type XI by Oakeshott's typology, is fitted with a wheel pommel and straight guard, as well as peened for maximum durability.
This sword is historically tied to the Normans because of its frequent appearance in the Bayeux Tapestry: an embroidery that depicts the Norman Conquest. It will be of particular interest to people interested in British history and especially those who trace their ancestry to the Norman invasion.
