VA-103-Craftsman Series - The Norseman Viking Sword
The Valiant Armoury Norseman Viking Sword Craftsman Series
The Craftsman blades are made by either Sonny or Zach. The steel we use is 6150 High Carbon Spring Steel. The blades are precision ground to specs. We normalize the steel 2 times prior to heat treat to refine the grain structure of the steel to produce a more uniform distribution of carbon content throughout the blade. Our heat treat oven is state of the art and very accurate.
We polish the steel prior to tempering to check for cracks and inclusions then temper to a Rockwell 52 for strength, resiliency and toughness.
The blades are then hand finished and sharpened to an apple-seed edge on the Craftsman Series blades
All sword fittings begin as waxes made in our shop. We send those out to a foundry right here in Texas
The Grip and Scabbard cores are custom made for each sword and wrapped in quality top grain leather then hand dyed to the customers requested colors. Each scabbard includes a handmade leather belt/harness that is also hand dyed to the customers requested color
