Our 5 Lobe Viking Sword is based on a late Viking design from around the 11th century and is contemporary with the Battle of Stamford Bridge in 1066. A similar sword held in the British Museum collection was reputed to be taken from the tomb of the Earl of Pembroke in Temple Church, but was probably found in the River Thames at Temple Church . It features a forged and fullered steel blade designed for hacking and slashing and is hilted with a short guard and 5 lobed pommel. The wooden scabbard is wrapped with brown leather to match that of the leather wrapped sword grip. Although this sword has a forged blade it is not tempered and is not suitable for combat.
