The Clontarf
Viking Type K
This style of Viking era sword is referred to as a Type K hilt in Petersen's Typology, due to the distinctive five-lobed pommel and straight guard. Find places for this hilt form are broadly distributed across Europe and as far south as the Balkans, dating from the late 9th into the late 10th centuries.
The hilt components are investment cast in mild steel from original waxes carved by Leif Hansen under the direction of Peter Johnsson, based on Peter's first-hand examination and documentation of period originals of this type.

These swords will be sold sharp, unless otherwise requested by the customer.

I should have posted in the origional post. The blade has a name etched into it. Its the previous owner's sons name. The work was done by Patrick Thaden and is in Gaelic.

I am looking into the posibility of having the name buffed out.

Either way, the blade is still 1 of a 100 production run.
