In 871 AD, the young Prince Alfred, later known as Alfred the Great, valiantly lead the army of King Ethelred of Wessex in a glorious victory against a large invading Danish army. This sword signifies the main weapon used in this now decisive battle. Its blade is forged from high carbon steel. The full, extra-wide fuller makes the blade light and deadly. The crossguard is lavishly decorated with raised knot work and both it and the pommel have been darkened to a forge finish. Soft worn leather covers the ribbed wooden grip. A matching period leather scabbard with belt is included, which has a highly decorative metal chape.
