A fine reproduction of a 9th century Anglo-Saxon sword currently on display in the Yorkshire Museum - the Gilling Sword. The blade is pattern-welded steel, made in the traditional twisted-rod method with 1095 high carbon steel edges. The hilt is a Petersen type L, the blade is a Geibig type 1. Overall, this sword is similar to the Leuterit and River Witham swords. An absolutely stunning reproduction, and the most affordable pattern-welded blade currently on the market. Leather covered wood scabbard with matching fittings.
