This sword is made using the same methods that the Vikings used 1000 years ago. It is a hand-forged copy of a typical Viking sword from the 11th century, the original was found on Gotland. The blade is semi-sharp, forged in high-quality carbon steel, hardened with oil and tanned in the traditional way, over a coal case. This is done so that the blade will be both flexible and strong. The blade is also marked with the Nordlys™ "smith's mark" so you can be sure that you have a genuine sword from our own forge.

The hilt has a leather-wrapped grip and typical Viking-era shaped button and paring bar. 

The ski is made in the traditional way with a wooden core bound with black leather and with a bronze dip shoe in a Viking era design. The sword scabbard has a wooden belt bridge and is decorated with both inlays under the leather and brown braided leather straps. 

The Viking warrior typically had two belts for the sword, one over the opposite shoulder and one around the waist. The two belts relieved and distributed the weight of the sword and ran through a jumper on the ski called a belt bridge.
