A hersir, in Viking culture, was an important person. They were a local military leader, who organized village defenses, as well as raids. And as its name implies, this Hersir Viking Broad Sword would have been the ideal weapon for such a warrior to wield. This sword is a broad-bladed and powerful example of typical Viking swords, yet it is surprisingly light and effective in the hands of a swordsman, making it a deceptively potent blade. The sword is hand crafted, with an EN45 carbon spring steel blade that features gently slant edges, drawing the wide waist of the blade down slightly to the point, which is still broad, yet also still effective. A wide fuller runs down the blade as well, helping to lessen the swords weight without removing any durability or strength. The narrow, yet broad, guard suits the swords overall design and background nicely, while the two-part pommel echoes the construction of classic Viking swords, with its riveted and wire-wrapped connection. Included with the sword is always a leather-wrapped, wood scabbard, for safe keeping and safe carrying. To be a hersir, you no doubt had to be a great warrior. This Hersir Viking Broad Sword can serve as a modern-day badge of office for any Viking enthusiasts and warriors, as well as a great collectible and a perfect sword to carry at your side, too.
This sword comes in two types. The regular version is tempered and hardened and features traditional shaping, making it a great choice for display or carrying to complete your look. The Light Combat version is tempered and hardened with thick edges and a rounded tip, making it suitable for light use in sparring and reenactment.
