Frankish Sword

Primary Material: Tempered Steel The term "Frankish Sword" isn't really historical for the Viking Age, but is defined here as the strait, double-edged cutting and slashing swords which replaced the spatha in northern Europe between the 7th and 11th Century AD. For game purposes a Frankish sword is a single handed cutting sword with a small hand grip, heavy iron (as opposed to wood or bone) pommel, and broad deeply fullered blade with a rounded or spatulate point. First appearing in the late Migration period among the Franks and the Norse tribes, this evolutionary development of the spatha is better balanced and arguably more specialized for cutting. It saw continuous use by Germanic and Norse peoples through the end of the Viking age (from the end of the 7th through the 11th -12th century), and also spread to Ireland, the British Isles, Russia, the Baltic States, Poland, Bohemia, Spain, France, Italy, and parts of the Middle East and Central Asia.
