Kingston Arms Tourney Viking Sword (re-enactment stage blade)

Blunt Viking Sword for re-enactment and stage combat. 

Our Tourney Series Sparring and Stage Swords will set a new standard in this price point of re-enactment weaponry. Features like thru-tang handle construction, peened stainless steel pommel and guard and 2mm rounded edge thickness. 

The cord wrapped leather grip feels exceptional in the hand with an oval cross section and slight barrel shape to keep fatigue at bay. The grip is large enough to accommodate armoured hands. A respectable fuller runs the length of the blade to lighten and counter balance the sword overall. The blade is forged from 9260 spring steel and is tempered to around 50 Hrc. A wood core and leather wrapped scabbard tipped with a stainless chape comes with each sword. The guard needs special mention, featuring the King-Peen system. King-Peen is essentially a steel tab on the guard under the grip that is pinned through the tang of the sword. This process keeps the guard from working loose without compromising the strength of the hilt. The pommel is pressed into place and hot peened. Combine these two processes and you get a sword that rings like a bell when struck

Tourney Series

The Tourney Series of blunt swords is the culmination of 20 years of experience producing swords and related pieces for re-enactment and stage use. We have several swords in development at this time, but the first available in the series is a classic Single Hand Arming Sword and Viking Sword. 

Conceived as a premium line of blunt swords fit for reenactment & stage combat, they not only look the part but hold up to it as well. The blades are forged from 9260 spring steel and well tempered to a rockwell hardness of 50Hrc. The edges are at least 2mm thick and rounded for safety. The guard and pommel are finely cast stainless steel and stone washed, giving a long lasting finish that will look good for years worth of battles. The guards feature the newly designed King-Peen system - a thick tab of steel is cast with the guard then riveted in place to the tang under the grip. This method provides an exceptional connection of the guard and blade and in our testing keeps the sword ringing like a bell. The grip is an ergonomically shaped hardwood core wrapped in cord for strength with cord-embossed leather over top. This composite grip construction is not only historically accurate but also long lasting and maintenance friendly. Feels pretty good too. 

The scabbards are wood core and covered in leather with a stainless steel chape. These scabbard will lend themselves as-is to keep your sword ready at your side.
