Long Bladed Viking Sword with Leather Scabbard - Lovely piece.

The Viking sword was a weapon of the Viking Age. It was a development of the Roman spatha, evolving out of the Migration Period sword in the 8th century, and into the classical knightly sword in the 11th century with the emergence of larger cross-guards. Early Viking Age swords were pattern welded, though later blades were made of more homogeneous steel.
