Norman Medieval Sword, 1000-1300 AD.
Type Xa.

The transition from the Germanic Swords to the Swords of the Medieval period sword took shape between the 10th and 11th centuries. The main development was the introduction of the crucifix guard and transition into the traditional wheel pommel, typically associated with the Normans and fitted on numerous swords throughout the Middle-Ages.

The Normans (also called Northmen or Norsemen) were the descendants of the Scandinavian Vikings who raided the European coastal settlements at the outset of the 8th century. Despite the Norman?s conversion to Christianity and their adoption of Frankish way of life, the Normans retained many of the traits of their Germanic ancestors.

This medieval sword is historically bound to the Normans because of its frequent appearance in the Bayeux Tapestry: an embroidery that depicts the Norman Conquest.

The Norman battle ready Sword, classified as type Xa by Oakeshott?s typology, is classically styled with the traditional wheel pommel and guard.

The Norman Sword is finely engineered for the most discriminating collector. Designed for actual medieval combat, our staff conceived the Norman sword with a responsive, well balanced and resilient core. The hand-crafted blade, wheel pommel and guard have been designed from originals, conserving the authenticity and "feel" of the originals. The Norman sword is not a reproduction. It is a recreation of one of the most important swords of human history.
