During the so-called Dark Ages, there were many advances in metallurgy and better swords, like this Migration Period Sword, were produced. Based on a 7th Century design, this slashing sword was a favorite. The wide central fuller was the key to reinforcing the blade all along the edges. Hand forged from high carbon steel and tempered, this full tang sword would have been carried by the most skilled warriors.
Brown suede wrap over wood grip and intricate bronze parts. Runic copper fill along the fuller was a skilled way to show the beliefs and power taken into battle to full effect and translate to: Cattle - reward for defeating the foe, Tyr - god of battle, Yew - supreme natural toughness
. The other side translates to: Game - wily nature, Elk - wild vitality, Man - the one thing that could embody all attributes
. Includes elaborate wood, suede and metal scabbard with top grain leather belt. Circa 650-750 AD
