Tinker 9th Century Viking Sword Sharp has an overall length of 37.37" with a 30.87" 5160 marquenched spring steel blade. 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 in as much 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.

A brown leather scabbard is included with these pieces, though the original Cromwell Sword lacks one.

Named for the feared 8th century Viking raider, The Paul Chen Godfred Sword is built around a beautifully patterned folded steel blade to replicate the pre-9th century originals. The interwoven leather grip, complemented by a Damascus guard and pommel, is matched by the leather-covered wood scabbard with bronze detailing and integral belt hooks. Superbly balanced, due to the deeply fullered distal tapered blade profile, the Godfred is a true tribute to the legendary Norse smiths.
