The light, wide fullered Viking style blade is 1095 high carbon, well tempered steel. The scabbard is wood covered in rich harness grade leather with embossing and covered in faux reindeer fur. The beautiful metal parts are applied to the scabbard and the included baldric. Altogether making this entire piece fit for a king. Made by Windlass Steelcrafts.

I opened the box to be sure everything was there but this is a gift. I cannot wait to see his face! It is gorgeous!
This is a big, impressive Sword, well balanced and surprisingly light for it's side. It was $30 less here than from it's producer, if I recall. The scabbard is very nice. The leather is high quality and the embellishments are attractive. I'm not crazy about faux fur, but I'm not complaining. The strap makes it easy to throw over your shoulder. The scabbard embellishments are glued on and may come loose and require regluing at some point. I have yet to sharpen it, as I just received it. I plan to get a good working edge on the majority of the blade and a razor sharpness on the last 10-11 inches nearest the tip, as was customary for medieval swords. The steel is good and should take a fine edge.
