Item No. 09 is another sword in my limited edition of 25 "Neo-Viking" swords. This one is No.11 in that series. This sword is welded from 1060, L-6 steel with a small amount of meteorite thrown in for interest. The blade is welded in the "Maiden's Hair" pattern and is 30" in length and 2 1/8" in width. There is a single full length fuller on each side of the blade. The fittings are file worked phosphor bronze. This is a BIG and powerful sword.
The pattern is superb! Great contrast and an almost "dramatic" feel to its depth.. A fine example of the "Maiden's Hair" pattern. This particular pattern is seldom seen in a blade of this size..due to the size of the faggot one has to weld in order to get enough material to twist and forge this size of blade..It's a good deal of work..indeed.
The one piece "Fossil Bovine Ivory" grip shows great colours and variations. It is set with phosphor bronze studs in a diaper pattern. This grip is just beautiful.
This sword has an overall length of 37 3/4". This is a big sword and quite a conversation piece ..Eye catching and simply beautiful...A great addition to any collection or re-enactor.. Comes with a black leather sheath.
