Suontaka Viking Sword

The Suontaka sword was originally discovered in the grave of a Finnish Viking Princess. This sword has a grace and beauty in its proportions and decoration that is remarkable for the time it was made. I used a pattern welded billet for the example in the pictures - rods of steel and iron forge welded together into an exquisitely complex blade, the steel of legends. The fittings are heavily carved in bronze, with a masur birch grip and central ring.

The sword is matched with an ash and calfskin hand-stitched scabbard with belts,buckle and strap ends in bronze.
