Viking Sword by Alex Salsi

Belgian knifemaker with Italian roots, Alessio "Alex" Salsi, made this fantastic Viking Sword. The multibar damascus for the blade was forged by Achim Wirtz. Other materials used: bog-oak for the handle, linden wood for the sheath, oak for the box. It came with a belt as well.


The sword is constructed the way it was done centuries ago. To make the wood carvings, Alex made his own tools. One of those was included with the sword. It has a boxwood handle, and a damascus blade.

This complete package is one of the TOP pieces in my collection, and the best work of Alex, so far. But I'm sure he has more up his sleeve!
