Viking Sword :: The Einar
The Einar Viking Swords are Limited to 800 copies Worldwide
It was an age of adventure and savagery. A time when Vikings piled into longships to set out across the seas, raiding and settling the lands they found. But far more than just savage barbarians, they were also farmers, poets, traders, and explorers.
Their stories can be found in the Vinland Sagas. Part of the Icelandic Sagas, and evoking the legendary names of Einar and Erik the Red, the Vinland Sagas represent the most complete information about the Norse exploration of the Americas and paint a vivid portrait of a heroic world long lost and the amazing people who inhabited it. The Vinland sagas originate from the same land as Njal and Gunnar, as told in Njal’s Saga, two friends whose families’ unending feud would bring them to a violent end. As the tragedy of Njal’s family unfolds, Grettir the Strong’s
strength and temper transform him into a hero, an outlaw, and a villain. Across the sea in England, Egil Skallagrimson adds to his legend to become a warrior poet above all others. And, outlawed from his home in the wake of the feud, Erik the Red sails far to the west to discover new lands, founding the doomed settlement known as Vinland.
The Einar is inspired from the Vinland sagas and by Norse Mythology. Derived from the Old Norse name Einarr, which according to one of the foremost Scandinavian scholars, Guðbrandur Vigfússon, is connected with the concept of the Einherjar, undead warriors from Norse mythology. The name is related to the Old Norse common nouns einarðr (meaning “bold”) and einörð (meaning “valour”).
Aggregating all essential elements of Viking art and Norse Mythology, the Einar exemplifies the peak of Viking culture. Luxuriously handcrafted from the finest material, the Einar is a distinguished Viking sword you will be proud to own. Hand-forged from 5160 high carbon steel and dual-tempered, the Einar Viking sword is a rugged Viking weapon of choice. Well balanced and skillfully engineered, The Einar sword blends the artistic abilities of the Norse people and the central role of warfare in the Viking world.
Customer feedback about the Einar Viking Sword:
‘I received my Einar today. And in have now joined all the faithful in Valhalla. This is by far the most amazing sword I now own. It is everything I expected and more. The pictures do it justice, but until one holds it in their hand, they cannot imagine the feeling of now having joined the elite warriors of old who sought out new worlds and new conquests. Holding this sword brings me as close to that as one can ever be. I applaud you Eyal and all at DSA, this sword even surpasses my Wolfsbane. And that I thought impossible. Also thanks for the extra goodies. Keep up the too work.’
