This Viking sword scabbard fits to most swords with approx. 23-43” (60-110cm) long blades. The core of the sheath is made of wood. It is coated with 2.0-2.5 mm thick genuine leather. The throat and the tip of the sheath fitted with brass. A wolf head is engraved on the latch of the leather suspender, which was a symbol of the plundering and looting warriors. Similar meaning has the name "Ránnulfr" (plundering wolf).
This scabbard is made-to-measure of the sword included in the same order. If you order the scabbard separately, please fill in the blade measurements in this chart after finishing your order.
In the case of hand-forged blade our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it with hand on the anvil or under the monkey (drop hammer). By forging becomes the steel more compacted (denser). Industrially rolled spring steel blades are made by cutting steel plate into strips under drop shears. Then they are ground or milled/grooved and without further forging directly put into the annealing furnace and hardened in oil bath. The qualities of both kinds of blades do not differ from each other much since the industrial rolling is already very good. On forged blades usually have forge traces, which give them an authentic and unique look.
