Cold Steel 88VS Viking Sword. The typical Viking sword of the 9th and 10th centuries featured a long wide blade with a broad central fuller and two keen edges. The preferred stroke was a hard slash or chopping blow, so the point was fairly rounded but was just acute enough to be useful for thrusting. A simple guard with forward curving quillions was often utilized and combined with an equally utilitarian wooden handle that was covered with leather, bone, or even cast in brass. What really made the Viking Sword so distinctively recognizable from its contemporaries was its heavy 5 lobed pommel used to balance the long blade. Cold Steel's Viking sword has features in common with its historical counterpart. It has a double edged blade, hand forged out of high carbon steel and then polished to a brilliant luster. The wooden handle is covered in leather and is supported by a simple, elegant guard at one end and an equally handsome 5 lobed pommel at the other. Both guard and pommel feature traditional Celtic knot embellishments. To house the keen double edge blade each sword is supplied with a wood scabbard covered in black leather and reinforced with a highly polished steel chape and throat.

Specifications: Overall length: 36 7/8", Blade length: 30 1/4", Blade thickness: 15/64"; Weight: 37.1oz., Steel: 1055.

I am very happy with this sword as it's exactly what I was looking for. I wanted a quality, functional, Viking style sword but I didn't want to spend all my money. That's exactly what this is. Now for people looking for a historically accurate display piece, look elsewhere. This is a weapon, not a collectible. Who you'd fight with it I don't know though. Maybe clowns. Make sure you also buy a sword frog so you can carry this if you plan to as it does not come with a belt system. Comes with a decent edge, that you can sharpen if you like. I sharpened it slightly but the edge it comes with will do the job. Right out of the box it was slicing full milk jugs in half without spilling from the bottom half. Tip is fantastic. Sheath is a little stick but I've had it maybe 3 hours and I've broken it in already. Definitely would buy again.
