Damascus Steel Blade Viking Sword (Isle of Eigg)

This Viking sword is a replica of a sword found on the Isle of Eigg and dated to approx. the 8th / 9th c. It features a blunt, slim Damascus steel blade with a wide fuller. The short guard, grip and pommel are made of cast bronze and richly decorated.

The scabbard is made of leather-wrapped wood and features a bronze chape and mouth as well as a belt loop made of bronze (max. belt width 5 cm).

The terms Damascus steel or pattern welded designate a compound steel forged out of two or more different types of steel. It is named after its birthplace, the Syrian city of Damascus, a former stronghold of the patterned steel production.
As a common practice, a harder high carbon steel and a milder low carbon steel are repeatedly forge welded and folded together. The high carbon steel ensures a higher hardness, a better temperability and longer lasting edge retention, whereas the milder steel confers greater blade flexibility and tensile strength. This procedure, which arose in a time where steel qualities were often low and inconsistent, enables to combine the positive attributes of the various steel grades.
Besides, the different shadings generated by the varying carbon content of the alternating layers engender strikingly beautiful patterns, such as the twisted motif called Torsion Damascus pattern or the Rose Damascus pattern. Undoubtedly, these unusual patterns partly explain why inherent magical properties were attributed to the Damascus steel blades of the Middle Ages.

This sword is also available as a regular version with a blade made of high carbon steel (article no. 0116040601)
