Cold Steel Viking Sword 1060 Carbon Steel Live Blade

Cold Steel’s interpretation of this sword features a double-edged blade that is hand forged out of Carbon steel and hand polished and sharpened to perfection. The wooden handle is covered in leather and is supported by a simple, elegant guard at one end and a 5 lobed pommel at the other. The Viking Sword is supplied with a leather wrapped wooden scabbard that is reinforced with a polished steel chape and throat.
