PC2408 Paul Chen Tinker 9th Century Viking Sword Sharp
37 1/4" overall. 30 7/8" sharpened 5160 marquenched spring steel fullered blade. Black leather handle with steel hilt and pommel featuring circular indentation pattern. Black leather scabbard with suspension points and steel fittings. While not a direct copy of any particular sword, the Tinker Viking sword design was inspired by historical examples from the early 9th Century, most notably finds from the area around Trondheim, Norway, where the circular indentation hilt decoration was popular. The scabbards are provided with suspension points and a period chape, giving the sheathed sword a very attractive appearance. The construction of the Viking "pair" differs from other swords in the Tinker series in as much as they are tang-riveted (peened) in period fashion at the pommel, primarily to satisfy Viking re-enactment requirements. However, as with the other swords in the series, replacement blades are available. The breadth of the Sharp makes for an efficient cutting profile. See models PC2409 for the Tinker Blunt Viking Sword and PC2419 for the Sharp replacement blade. Made in China.
