The British Museum has many fine Viking swords, but one of the most beautiful is the "Leuterit" sword. This sword has the name "Leuterit" engraved on the blade which is believed to be the name of the smith that made it. Windlass has not included this on their copy, as it is cost prohibitive. They have, however, stayed true to the size and weight of the original, and to its deadly beauty.

The British Museum has many fine Viking swords, but one of the most beautiful is the "Leuterit" sword. This sword has the name "Leuterit" engraved on the blade which is believed to be the name of the smith that made it. Windlass has not included this on their copy, as it is cost prohibitive. They have, however, stayed true to the size and weight of the original, and to its deadly beauty. You have only to draw and hold this sword to know why this type of blade was used from Micklegard to Ireland, and from Iceland to the inland sea of the Mediterranean. The guard and pommel are silver, with copper lozenges. The grip is wood with silver pins. Made from high carbon steel by Windlass Steelcrafts, complete with scabbard.
