The celebrated Cawood Sword,  named after its discovery location near Cawood Castle in England is regarded as one of the finest and best-preserved examples of an 11th century Viking sword in existence.  Preserved in the mud of the bed of the River Ouse for almost a millenium,  the sword has now found a permanent home in the Yorkshire Museum,  where it is a leading attraction.  What is almost certainly a “sister” sword was unearthed in Norway in 1888,  giving a valuable clue to the Cawood Sword’s origin.

Hanwei's version of the sword replicates the lobated pommel and steeply down curved quillons of the hilt perfectly,  while the wide-fullered blade is reproduced in forged 5160 high-carbon steel.  The weight and balance provide for a very usable sword.  No details of the original scabbard are known,  but the styling of Hanwei’s leather-covered version is typical of the period.
