These swords are meticulously hand crafted. The tangs are actual full tangs, not the typical rat tail that are found in most decorative swords. The high quality blades are hand forged using EN45 Spring steel to make the blade non brittle and give it a spring like quality that will not warp. 

This sword comes with a dull edge, but can be sharpened in our workshops for £20.
We hand sharpen all our swords to ensure the temper of the blade is not compromised and use a course stone to achieve the angle and a fine stone to finish the cutting edge.

To mantain and keep your sword blade sharp we recommend you use the puck sharpener after evey use.

Saxon Long Sword
Early Saxon swords of the fifth and sixth centuries had long straight blades and often were to be found with a distinct waisted hilt, these swords were often embellished with stunning decoration often in the form of knotwork or stylised beasts. These were the swords of the Saxon warriors and to own one was to be a member of a warrior elite.
Swords were very valuable objects at this time and frequently were family heirlooms being passed from father to son down the generations. If the sword had been used to perform heroic deeds and acts of daring, the sword became an object enhanced with almost mystical value such that in could no longer be easily measured in earthly terms.
