This reconstruction of the Korsoygaden sword was made after the original that was found buried in a stone cyst with the remains of its scabbard and a shield. This simple yet attractive Viking sword is named after where the sword was originally found – Korsoygaden. It has a broad blade a curved crossbar hilt and a distinctive ornate pommel decorated with ridges. Both the guard and the pommel are made from polished carbon steel. The grip is wrapped in genuine brown cow leather and decorated with two engraved brass sockets. The blade features a long, deep fuller. It is available with optional matching scabbard with polished brass fittings at the throat, chape and a buckle.
Made in the Czech Republic.
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.
