To meet the different demands of the Western martial artists meet, there are of each of the seven swords, all offering excellent handling, a sharp and a blunt version. Careful heat treatment of (Tinker preferred) 5160 steel by marquenching results in an excellent combination of strength and flexibility at a Rockwell hardness of 50-52 HRC. A higher edge strength is at the sharp blades allows, while the blunt models prevents burrs and the safety-related flexibility of the tip is guaranteed.
Without being a direct copy of a particular sword, the Viking sword this historical models of the 9th century was modeled. Especially in Trondheim, Norway were found swords, which show a preference for circular depressions in decorating the handles. Attachment points and a stylish chape give the vagina an attractive appearance. Of the other swords of the Tinker series, the Viking swords differ in that the riveting of the Angel and the blade of the blunt version on boxing show as aimed at training more. The handling of both versions of this sword (sharp or blunt blade) is almost identical.

In the case of hand-forged blades, our blacksmith takes the already rolled spring steel and forges it by hand on the anvil or under the drop hammer. The steel gets more solid (denser) by forging. In the case of industrially rolled spring steel blades, the sheets of steel plate is cut to strips under drop snips, then ground or milled and immediately forged into the annealing furnace and oil-quenched. The properties of both kinds of steels are not very different, since industrial rolling is already very good! On forged blades are usually blacksmith marks, which give them an authentic and unique look.
