5160 Spring Steel Replica of an actual crusader period War Sword from the Arsenal at Alexandria.
The Legend of Hjalmar is a well known Norse saga of true love, brotherhood, battle, Berserkers, curses, magical swords and everything else you would expect from a tale that has survived the centuries.
Kingdom of Arms has sought to create a version of this fabled Viking sword.
Hjalmar himself had a reputation as being unbeatable, yet was in love with the Kings beautiful daughter Ingeborg, who forbade his Housecarl from marrying her on account of his lack of noble blood. However, his reputation as a courageous and valiant warrior reached the very upmost parts of Norway. So another mighty warrior Örvar-Oddr decided to travel all the way to Sweden to test Hjalmar in battle...
It is said they fought an honorable duel for two days without rest - and in the end, covered in blood, they declared each other as equals and remained loyal friends and blood brothers until Hjalmars eventual demise, where the Viking Örvar-Oddr he carried his friend to his grave on his back..
It's a fantastic saga so if you don't know it, look it up!
Kingdom of Arms sought to create a handmade sword fit for the hero! It is hand forged from virgin 5160 carbon steel. Tempered and fully functional (Battle Ready) it is a classic example of an Oakeshott Type X Viking sword - with wide fuller extending almost the entire length of the blade, a more rounded tip (as Viking swords were primarily used for CUTTING) and a 3 lobed pommel with type 2 guard.
Weighing only 2.5lbs, it is balanced towards the tip so can generate a lot of cutting momentum without tiring you out - ideal if you need to fight a Holmgång lasting 2 days!
