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. The armorers of Windlass Steelcrafts have forged this sword from 1080 high carbon steel. The full, extra-wide fuller makes the blade light and deadly. The crossguard has been lavishly decorated with raised knotwork and both it and the pommel are steel and have been darkened to a forge finish. Soft worn leather covers the wooden grip. A matching period leather scabbard with belt is included, which has a highly decorative metal shoe.
Can be sharpened for an additional fee.
