Our Generation 2/Legacy Arms 12th Century Sword is modeled after an original c. 1100 - 1250 Northern Europe, Museum and Art Gallery, Glasgow. A well known leading expert on medieval swords comments that the original could be from as early as 1100 to as late as 1250.

The pommel, a faceted wheel, is a shape encountered in the Leppaho Viking swords, a group of swords excavated from Viking graves dating from 980-1000. The crossguard is of an early form, which the Vikings referred to as Gaddhjalt [spike hilt]. The blade is designed for the cutting style of fighting used during this period and has a fuller running 2/3 the length of the blade.

The grip features a hardwood handle, wrapped in leather. The cross guard and pommel are solid steel, polished and fitted onto a tang that is peened at top of the pommel for strength and durability. And is how many of the originals were fitted. The scabbard is made from wood then wrapped in leather with a solid steel end cap.

Reviews & Testimonials+
On one cut, I drastically undershot the bottles and made full contact with the top of the cutting table. This cutting surface is made of pine 2x6s and the Norman sword sheared the end of the table off at about a 30 degree angle. I immediately checked the edge and blade alignment as this impact imparted quite a severe shock to the blade. The blade was perfectly straight and there was no sign of the impact on the edge. -- Mike Harris, Texas USA
