Shieldmaiden 

(Viking Sword) $1,755

Shieldmaiden Scabbard  $942

Shieldmaiden - 20


Inspired by the Suontaka sword, discovered in a woman’s grave in Finland. The guard is similar to the original, while I’ve chosen to replace the Petersen type AE pommel with a Type S.

The blade is a Geibig type 4, hand ground from high-carbon steel to a fine satin finish. It is heat-treated in molten salts for maximum flexibility and to take a fine edge. This sword is sold sharp. 

Fittings are investment cast bronze. The grip is covered in hand dyed top grain leather.

The scabbard features investment cast bronze chape and throat locket, hand dyed top grain leather cover, hardwood strap bridge and a hand carved poplar core.
