The Vikings are among the most celebrated warriors of human history. Not the least due to their own stories and Sagas of epic battles and heroic deeds. For centuries, the Vikings raided and colonized wide areas of Europe. They reached North America centuries before Columbus and traded as far as modern day India. These Danish, Norwegian, and Swedish warriors were prompted to undertake their raids by a combination of socio-political factors and overpopulation. As a result, Norse culture permeated all of Western Europe and greatly influenced the development of many modern nations.
Skillfully crafted from 5160 High Carbon steel, the Oslo Viking Sword is an inspiring weapon. Authoritative, vibrant and rugged, the Oslo Viking sword is well balanced and a fierce Viking weapon of choice. Inspired by the remains of a 10th C. Viking hilt with elaborated serpentine motifs, the sword remains faithful to its historical counterparts.
The sword has always been at the core of Viking history. As a result, we engineered the Oslo Viking sword for the same kind of brutal use that the original historical examples would have been put to. Vivid and resilient, the Oslo Viking sword is built to last.
