The blade is a composite of 1060 and 15n20 high carbon steel to create a shock absorbing core and the harder and more resilient edge was forge-welded onto the blade body to complete the blade. The twisting of the steel bars to form the body of the blade creates the uniquely laddered banded patterning visible on the blade.
The grip is crafted from polished bone between brass discs, decorated with carved motifs in scandinavian style.
Dimensions: 62.5 cm overall length, blade of 50.5 cm.
This is a decorative piece, not sharp, with an edge of about 1 mm thick. The materials used on the blade and the its construction with the pattern-welded technique, makes it a non recommended item or suitable for combat or for a real use.
