Product description

This classic Viking sword was designed as a tribute to Baldur, the son of Odin and Frigg. The leather grip is decorated with three runes that are most suitable for the Norse God: Courage, Protection and Power. The blade is made of high-quality carbon steel (1065) and is etched with runes that roughly translate as "Baldur". The leather scabbard has an integrated strap. The scabbard is covered with a layer of black suede and decorated with light brown leather. The top and bottom of the scabbard bear a Viking symbol for the sun, as Baldur was known as a shining light to all who knew him. In the pantheon of Norse deities, Baldur was the son of Odin and Frigg (thus a brother of Thor and Loki) and as such was destined to rule after Odin. Beloved by all gods except Loki (surprising?), Baldur is known as a figure who brings joy to all who share his company. Ancient Norse poetry describes Baldur's death as a tragedy and a harbinger of Ragnarok.Some scholars believe the name Baldur translates to "brave," so the rune of courage was added. In her attempt to save Baldur from harm, Frigg asked everything to never harm him (except mistletoe), so the rune of protection has also been added. Finally, Baldur was known for always being prepared for battle, so the rune of strength rounds it all out.

This item is produced in limited quantities only. This means that every piece is unique. Sizes & finish may vary lightly from piece to piece.

Prevent rust and corrosion by oiling your weapons regularly. Remove rust easily with black sandpaper. Remove burrs with a whetstone. Make sure you have removed all burrs before using a battle-ready weapon, as they can cause wounds.

Tip: How to adjust the finish of your armour and weaponry
Luxurious (polished)- polish the steel with metal polish or toothpaste. You can even give the item a mirror-like polish. Test on a small surface first!
Handmade (matte)- soak the steel in cola for 40 minutes to 20 hours. Check regularly and treat with black sandpaper.
Antique (patinated) leave the steel to rust for some time in a damp environment, preferably outside. Remove the red layer of rust, to reveal the corroded top layer.
