Hanwei / Tinker Sharp Viking Sword
While not a direct copy of any particular sword, the Tinker Viking Sword design was inspired by historical examples from the early 9th Century, most notably, finds from the area around Trondheim, Norway, where the circular indentation hilt decoration was popular. The scabbards are provided with suspension points and a period chape, giving the sheathed sword a very attractive appearance. The construction of the Viking "pair" differs from other swords in the Tinker series inasmuch as they are tang-riveted (peened) in period fashion at the pommel, primarily to satisfy Viking re-enactment requirements. The breadth of the blade makes for an efficient cutting profile.
