5 Lobe Viking Sword (#1540)

The British Museum in London.

800-950 AD

A distinctive, instantly recognizable design, the 5 Lobe Viking Sword is our modern remake of a classic blade. Inspired by the simple yet well-made work of the Norse smiths, the clean lines and subdued fittings of the 5 Lobe Viking Sword mark it as a weapon of a seasoned Viking warrior, not a king or a lord. Yet even this deceptively simple weapon shows the signs of the generations of steelcraft that made the Viking raiders so formidably armed. A wide, straight, double-edged blade adorned with a broad fuller and terminating in a spatulate tip marks it as a Norse weapon, the family resemblance to other Viking swords clearly apparent. The leather-wrapped handle provides a comfortable grip, and the polished steel fittings – including the 5-lobed pommel that gives this sword its name – are powerful, yet subtle. A weapon for a warrior on the front lines, the 5 Lobe Viking Sword will serve you well wherever your voyages take you.
