Product Description

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. However, as with the other swords in the series, replacement blades are available. The breadth of the Sharp makes for an efficient cutting profile. See models SH2409 for the Tinker Blunt Viking Sword and SH2419 for the Sharp replacement blade.

  1. Review update 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 8th May 2016

    I've been abusing this sword on a tire pell for months. The sword has held up. Some burrs and nicks where I've hit the chain holding up the tires. A little work on a stone gets rid of them. The leather wrap on the hilt has split. Not surprising for what I've put the sword through. I wrapped it with leather cord and it works fine. There is a slight curve to the blade.


  2. For the Money, Great sword. 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 2nd Oct 2015

    I did a lot of research before I bought this sword. I was surprised at how light it is. It is very easy to move around. Upon initial inspection the construction looks top notch. The grip feels good. I might add a rawhide wrap to the grip just because I like a less-smooth grip when my hands get sweaty. There is some flex in the blade, which is a good thing. A completely rigid blade is prone to breaking. It is definitely a one-handed grip, which is completely period-accurate. I have large hands so my hand completely fills the grip. The pommel can definitely be used as an impact weapon. The blade had one small burr on it, which is not a big deal. It will come out with some stropping or a light honing. The blade is not razor sharp, but a sword edge doesn't have to be.
