Product Description

The typical Viking sword of the 9th and 10th centuries featured a long wide blade with a broad central fuller and two keen edges. The preferred stroke was a hard slash or chopping blow, so the point was fairly rounded but was just acute enough to be useful for thrusting. A simple guard with forward curving quillons was often utilized and combined with an equally utilitarian wooden handle that was covered with leather, bone, or even cast in brass. What really made the Viking Sword so distinctively recognizable from its contemporaries was its heavy 5 lobed pommel used to balance the long blade. Our sword has features in common with its historical counterpart. It has a double edged blade, hand forged out of high carbon steel and then polished to a brilliant lustre. The wooden handle is covered in leather and is supported by a simple, elegant guard at one end and an equally handsome 5 lobed pommel at the other. Both guard and pommel feature traditional Celtic knot embellishments. To house the keen double edge blade each of our swords is supplied with a wood scabbard covered in black leather and reinforced with a highly polished steel chape and throat.

Typically, I'm a fan of Cold Steel products, but they cut a major corner on this "Viking" sword. The pommel and hilt is threaded on (or held in place) by what is called a pommel nut. In lieu of a hot penned pommel, this is the cheap route they chose to take.

When I first opened the turd of a box it was shipped in, I was stunned by what I thought was a Cold Steel forgery. So much so that I photographed the sword from several angles and forwarded the pics over to Cold Steel to verify. They were amazingly fast getting back to me and they did confirm this particular sword was indeed one of theirs. Ouch.

The pommel nut sticks past the pommel a good ½", something the pictures do not show. I thought perhaps I had a fluke so I quickly ordered a second "Viking" sword and sadly, it was worse than the first one I purchased. The second one had the pommel nut sticking a ½" or so past the pommel and the hilt (cross guard) was extremely loose.

In closing, the swords will cut. They were both adequately sharp. How long will the swords hold up to cutting and chopping? That would be difficult to guess. Good luck if you decide to purchase one of these. You may want to do a bit more research first.

First off, the sword came packaged in bubble wrap only, NO BOX!!!! So much for a surprise gift. Totally see through. UPS guy was having a good laugh with my Wife and brother. Blade seems slightly bent/curved from shipping.

Product is good quality, though blade is surprisingly dull. Just above a butter knife. Needs professional sharpening. Very disappointed.

Considering a return.

My Cold Steel Viking sword, has a leather hilt that actually fits my hand, with a half inch to spare. It was basically sharp when I got it, but a few strokes on my Diamond DMT Wetstone, and it sliced through the skin of a tomato with as little pressure as my quality kitchen knives. The Cold Steel Viking Sword weighed in on my electronic postage scale at 2 pounds 4.5 ounces, which is a full 5 ounces lighter than my CAS Hanwei practical (dull) Viking Sword. The balance is superior to any of the swords in my collection. I only wish that my CAS Hanwei practical sword fit my hand and balanced as well.

The blade has the feel of good spring steel and has a solid feeling flex. Review of Viking Age swords sometimes talk of the fullered groove down the center of the blade. It is not a blood groove, rather it was designed that way to keep the blade from becoming overly heavy, without much loss of strength. This center groove on the Cold Steel blade appears to me that it was machined in, rather than hammered in during a traditional forging process on the blade. In that regard, I like the wider fullered groove that came with the CAS Hanwei practical viking sword

Really well made. I chopped a wooden chair in half and then resharpened it (I am a metalsmith) Don't recommend doing this (I wore goggles) Pommel still nice and intact. Love the quality. Have destroyed too many "Battle ready swords" with my axe test. If you are going to use this as a display, more power to ya. It is worth every penny. Keep it oiled up when not in use to prevent corrosion. This is not a toy. It came with a point I could put through a hanging slab of meat. Its a sword. We are not playing games here. Be aware of what you are doing and take heed, it is a weopon.

The actual product is great. I bought it for my husband and he loves it, stating that it's well balanced, the edge appears sharp and it has a good heft. The scabbard is nicely stitched, there is a small rough spot at the handle, but that's miner and to be expected with leather.

The packaging is another story. I read the other reviews that described the flimsy packaging material but decided to take a chance. The sword came wrapped in one layer of bubble wrap and encased in a flimsy cardboard box. The box had been taped shut in two spots and the cardboard tore at those spots, leaving one end to flap open and expose the sword. Luckily there was not any damage, but I think that's thanks to the skill of the delivery driver. I am amazed that the Cold Steel company hasn't improved their packaging with all the reviews that are now posted on Amazon.

This is a very pretty sword, at least in the condition that it left the factory. It is surprisingly light for its length and can easily be wielded with one hand. This is relevant as the grip is not large enough for both hands (about 5 inches), true to the historical swords it is emulating. The blade has some flex in it, but not an inappropriate amount. Unfortunately, when I received mine it had a fair amount of surface rust on the blade and tarnish on the chape of the scabbard. This likely occurred at the hands of the USPS rather than the vendor, however.

I CALLED COLD STEEL DIRECTLY IN VENTURA, CA, AND SPOKE WITH DYLAN IN THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE. HE TOLD ME THAT COLD STEEL CATEGORICALLY ***DOES NOT COVER*** THIS UNDER WARRANTY BECAUSE THEY HAVE NO WAY TO VERIFY WHERE IT CAME FROM AND THAT ANY BUYER MUST ASSUME IT IS DAMAGED OR DEFECTIVE. SAME GOES FOR EVERY OTHER COLD STEEL ITEM YOU FIND HERE.
