The Viscount, Medieval sword
Inspirational, Type XX blade.

The Viscount is a Hand-and-a-half battle ready sword that is conceptualized from various medieval swords of the 14th and 15th century. With its long broad, sharply tapered blade and octagonal equally tapered pommel, both of historical sources, the Viscount battle ready Sword is fitted with an inspirational guard. That being said, we took some creative liberty with the Viscount Medieval sword to produce a beautifully balanced battle ready sword which offers exceptional handling capabilities being wielded with one or two hands..

The Viscount sword is forged with a type XX blade. The character of these blades are broad and gracefully tapering to a sharp point. The Viscount Medieval Sword could have easily fit in the wars of the 15th C.

    Craftsmanship is beautiful. This is the sword I always wanted and now it is mine. Great balance and feel, and I love the hooked cross guard. On the plus side, it is such a well made sword that I won’t be wasting any more money on “battle ready” blades that come from inferior producers (will not mention names). My questions were answered promptly and the folks at Darksword even upgraded my package. Worth it.

    Had been anxiously waiting for my Viscount to come for two weeks. Had high expectations and Darksword Armory did not disappoint. I’ve bought a few “battle ready” swords in the past and none can hold a candle to Darksword. This was my first Darksword purchase and won’t be the last. This is what a REAL sword is supposed to feel/look/function like.

    I just received my Viscount from the sale page. I’m impressed with how it feels in the hands. Can’t wait to get some cutting tests in. The two handed norman blade it was fitted with makes more of a long sword. Looking forward to ordering more DSA blades soon.

    Got this sword of Touch of Modern App for a great deal (Saved about 150 USD). Unfortunately the one I received has a nice chip in the side of the blade. It’s still a beautiful blade and worth every penny, but I wish the craftsman took a bit more time to simply look over the blade before putting it up for sale (The mentioned defect is very noticable, and would have probably been fixed with a quick check and 5 minutes of touch up work).

    All in all, I got what I paid for. Hopefully if you spend the money for a full price piece they will not overlook the details.
