Details

Comes with leather frog that fits securely onto the scabbard, designed and made specifically for this sword in the battlecry range from Windlass.

The Maldon Viking sword from Windlass Steelcrafts Battlecry collection is a light, agile and resilient fighting blade that captures nearly everything that made this style such a formidable and near legendary design. Created to deal with shields, mail and thick fur or leather armour, it was more than a match for any hand-weapon of its day. Its semi-rounded point was capable of forcefully biting into targets without snagging or catching while its well-honed edge, neither too wide nor too narrow, enabled the widest possible array of single-hand combination blows. Its snub-hilt with distinct lobed-pommel gave the wielder a snug grip facilitating a quick center-of-rotation easily manipulated for exceptionally versatile action. With its capacity for delivering rapid single-handed strikes, it was ideal for fighting armed with a shield but also highly effective when matched with a sax or even a hand-axe. This a sword well-suited to any hand. Given a unique shadowed hue, one can well imagine a blade like the Maldon purposely darkened for a Northern nighttime skirmish. Serving a pivotal part in Norse martial heritage, it's easy to see why this style was so feared and so influential. Includes a matching scabbard with belt stop, custom packaging and certificate of authenticity signed by each smith that touched your blade through every step of the forging process.

    Review by Dav
    if you where a Viking all those moons ago you would be happy with this sword and it's performance ' well made despite stories of hastily finished tang peening issues resulting in a coarse pommel end I think that the functional no nonsense approach to placing a rock solid ready to rock n roll anytime weapon in your hands is what matters here ' fast recovery ensures that multiple rapid strikes are possible and very fast chop slash thrust combinations are a doddle compared to the human effort required to direct blows from some of the huge steel girders on the market ' leather scabbard does it's job and the belt loops whilst not appealing to the die hard authentic clobber crew are practical and made to last ' l like my Maldon Sword and hope you will enjoy yours

    Outstanding cutting, a little rough in refinery
    Review by Gav
    It cuts beautifully. A little heavy and the loops are cumbersome, get swinging and it's comfortable. Cuts thick branches easily and bottles are cut with ease
