The Viking sword is a form of spatha, evolving out of the Migration Period sword in the 8th century, and evolving into the classical knightly sword in the 11th century with the emergence of larger crossguards. Although called Viking swords, this style of sword was not exclusively limited to Vikings and appeared throughout Europe during the Viking age.
I was able to find an Emerson Mini A-100 which was unavailable or back ordered elsewhere. The price was good and shipping was very quick (two days). I will definitely buy though them again. --Customer via Resellerratings.com
